Administrative history

Knox United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Belmont, located southeast of Brandon, since 1925. Its predecessors were Belmont Presbyterian Church and Belmont Methodist Church. The Presbyterian Church, built in 1891, continued to be used as the United Church. The Methodist Church, built in 1892, was sold to the Pentecostal Assembly congregation shortly after Union in 1925. The first United Church minister to serve the charge was The Rev. H.B. Wallace. The church was renovated to a larger size and officially re-opened on October 23, 1927. Hilton was also served by the Belmont charge after 1940. Belmont continued to have afternoon services and Alma morning services. In 1975, Belmont Hilton and Baldur became one charge. The Belmont services were then held in the midday with Baldur and Hilton alternating morning and evening services each year. In September 2005, this charge amalgamated with the Glenboro and Holland-Cypress River Pastoral charge to form the Prairie Vision Pastoral charge, which includes Baldur, Belmont, Cypress River, Glenboro and Holland.
