Administrative history

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.
