Name of creator
Springfield Presbyterian Church existed in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, Manitoba from 1880 until 1925. Springfield is the oldest rural municipality in Manitoba, and Springfield Presbyterian Church was one of the oldest rural churches opened in the province. Springfield Presbyterian Church served the districts and villages of Oakbank, Birds Hill, and Suthwyn. Springfield Presbyterian Church joined the United Church of Canada in 1925, becoming Springfield United Church. Springfield United Church later joined Transcona Memorial Church.
The records of the Springfield Presbyterian church remained in the care of the United Church congregation following church union in 1925, and came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfer of records from the Transcona - Memorial United Church in 1981 and 2000.
