Biographical history

Mafeking United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Mafeking, located northwest of Swan Lake in the Rural Municipality of Mountain, from 1925 to 1966. Its predecessor was a Methodist Church that was in existence by 1911. Mafeking United Church was part of the Swan Valley Pastoral charge until 1943, when it formed its own charge with Birch River, Brierly, Burrels, Craigsford and Lenswood. Dauphin Presbytery approved the building of a new church in 1940 which was completed by 1944. Mafeking United Church joined the Bowsman-Minitonas-Birch River Pastoral charge when it was formed in 1955. Mafeking United Church no longer appears as a preaching point after 1966, although the church was still at least occassionally used until 1979.
