Biographical history

Neepawa Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Neepawa, located northeast of Brandon, from 1881 to 1925. It was originally part of the Salisbury Mission, which was later renamed the Neepawa Mission. Neepawa joined the circuit in 1882, and the name of the circuit was changed to Neepawa. By 1883, the circuit included Neepawa, Franklin, Arden, Kelwood, Eden and Glendale. By 1899, the Neepawa Mission had no other preaching points. The first church was built on the corner of Ellen Street and Walker Avenue in 1881 during Rev. G.K. Adams' Pastorate. It was replaced by another church in 1892, and a balcony was added in 1923. In 1925, Neepawa Methodist Church and 107 members of the Presbyterian Church officially joined the United Church of Canada and became Neepawa United Church.
