Biographical history

Poplar Point Presbyterian Church began when Rev. John Black came to preach in Poplar Point in 1866. Poplar Point had its own minister, Rev. Samuel Donaldson, by 1872. The Presbyterian and Methodist congregations shared the Methodist church until the Presbyterian church was built in 1889 on a portion of Parish Lot 81. The George Setter house was used as a manse until one was built in 1892. Poplar Point Presbyterian Church was associated with congregations at High Bluff, Meadow Lea, Portage la Prairie, Rat Creek (Burnside), Rosser and Warren. On May 24, 1924, Poplar Point's Presbyterians and Methodists entered a Local Union with Setters and High Bluff. The Rev. R.O. Armstrong presided over the new charge. In 1925, the congregation officially joined the United Church of Canada to become Poplar Point United Church. The former Methodist church was used for worship while the Presbyterian church and property were sold in 1928 to John Dyer. The manse sold in 1935. Poplar Point, Manitoba is located in the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie.
