Name of creator
St. Andrew's United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Garson, located southeast of Selkirk in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead, from 1925 to 1960. Its predecessor was St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian Church building, built in 1911, continued to be used after Union in 1925. St. Andrew's was added to the Beausejour Pastoral Charge in 1926 with student minister, Rev. F.W. Armstrong presiding. Previously, they had been connected to Hazelridge and Tyndall. During the 1930s and 1940s services were conducted by students and supply serving the communities of Beausejour, Garson and Tyndall as well as Hazelridge, Dugald and Anola. In 1958 the Beausejour charge was expanded to include Whitemouth and Seven Sisters. An ordained minister was called to serve this charge. It was then known as the Springfield Pastoral Charge to commemorate the mission of Springfield United Church, which had closed in 1951. United Church services were discontinued in Garson in 1960 and in 1969 the building was sold to the Elim Baptist Church of Beausejour. Currently it is known as Garson Mission Church.
The records of St. Andrew's United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer from the Garson Pastoral charge in 1989.
