Name of creator
St. Andrew's United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Swan River, located between the Porcupine Mountains and Duck Mountains, close to the Saskatchewan border in west-central Manitoba, since 1925. Its predecessors were St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and Swan River Methodist Church, both built in 1900. At Union, the Swan River Pastoral Charge also included Swan Valley. In 2009, it became a single point charge.
The records of St. Andrew's United Church, Swan River came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from St. Andrew's United Church U.C.W. in 1984 and 2000, and the Swan River Pastoral charge in 1989 and 2008.
