Histoire administrative

The Knox United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Minitonas since 1925. The church first began as a Presbyterian Church in 1899 with Rev. F. Johnston as Minister. His headquarters were in Tent Town and he was Minister at large for the whole Valley, along with Rev. North. Services were first held in homes, halls, in the C.N .R. station, the hotel, and store. In 1900, a Union Sunday School was started, and plans were implemented to build. That summer, both the Methodist and Presbyterian Congregations built churches in Minitonas. The First World War caused a shortage of ministers, so the two churches developed a Co-operative phase. There would be a minister of one denomination in one charge, and one of another denomination in the next. This may have smoothed the pathway for the amalgamation to form the United Church in 1925. In 1900, the Methodist Church in Lidstone had 55 members while Minitonas had 58 members. Church services in Lidstone were also still being held in the rural schools, even though the church buildings were in Minitonas. The present Knox United Church was built in 1952, with many hours of volunteer labor in building, canvassing and providing meals for workers. The church was officially opened and dedicated on the first Sunday in 1953.
