Biographical history

Roland United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Roland, located southeast of Carman, since 1925. Its predecessors were Zion Methodist Church and some members of Knox Presbyterian's congregation. Rev. B.W. Allison presided over a field that included points at Roland, Myrtle, Bethel, Pomeroy, Kane, and McNabb. Zion Methodist Church continued to be used as Roland United Church, but by 1927 a dispute surfaced regarding the ownership of Knox Presbyterian Church and the manse arose between the United Church and the non-concurring Presbyterian congregation. The litigations were not resolved until 1930 when the Presbyterians agreed to withdraw their claim to the manse and accepted the decision granting ownership of Knox Presbyterian Church to The United Church of Canada. Roland United Church offered the use of the church for Presbyterian services, but the congregation opted to use St. John's Anglican Church instead. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, a new kitchen and washrooms were installed. At the time of description, Roland is an independent pastoral charge in Agassiz Presbytery.
