Administrative history

The Kelwood Knox United Church has existed in Kelwood, Manitoba, located forty-six kilometers north of Neepawa, since 1925. Before formally joined the United Church of Canada in 1925, a Local Union was forged between the community's Presbyterian and Methodist congregations in 1919. Rev. Lavender was the first minister of this Union church. Services were held in the former Presbyterian Church. As per the Union agreement made in 1925, Kelwood, Riding Mountain, and Glencairn formed a pastoral charge and Rev. J.E.B. Anderson took over the service. In 1952, Kelwood amalgamated with McCreary. Norgate and Laurier were added to the charge as well. In 1968, closures in Laurier and Norgate left only Kelwood and McCreary on the charge, creating the Kelwood-McCreary Pastoral Charge. In 1993, Alonsa joined with Kelwood and McCreary to form the Alonsa/Kelwood/McCreary Pastoral Charge before closing in 2006.
