Biographical history

Little Britain United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Lockport, originally known as North St. Andrew's, since 1925. Its predecessor was Little Britain Presbyterian, built in 1874 on land donated by the Hudson's Bay Company. Little Britain and Cloverdale were a joint charge between around 1904 until joining the United Church of Canada in 1925. At the time of Union, Rev. J. Knox Clark presided over a field that included Little Britain, Cloverdale and Highland. Little Britain joined with Rivercrest in 1950, the same year that the original manse was demolished. A new church hall was built in 1951. It became a three-point charge when Bird's Hill was added in 1963 and remained so until 1987 when Rivercrest became a separate charge. Since 1992, Little Britain has been a one - point charge in the Selkirk Presbytery.
