Name of creator
Robertson Memorial United Church has existed in Winnipeg since 1925. The predecessors of Robertson Memorial United Church were Robertson Memorial Presbyterian Church (1911-1925), Alfred Avenue Mission (1907-1911), and Dufferin Avenue Presbyterian Church (1901-1911). The Robertson Memorial United congregation occupied the building erected by the Robertson Presbyterian congregation in 1911, on the corner of Burrows and McKenzie. In 1933, Robertson Memorial United Church began to share its space with the Ukrainian United congregation of Winnipeg, and continued to do so until the Ukrainian United congregation officially disbanded on October 31, 1961. Robertson Memorial United Church held its final service on June 22, 1997.
The records of Robertson Memorial United Church came to the conference archives as part of several transfers of records between 1970 and 2006.
