Biographical history

St. David's United Church existed near the Manitoba community of Oak Lake, located southeast of Virden, from 1925 to 1994. Its predecessor was St. David's Presbyterian Church built in 1892 and named after its first minister, Rev. David Hodges. In 1925, St. David's United Church was part of the Oak Lake Pastoral charge with Oak Lake and Ryerson. Rev. J.S. Miller officiated. The church was moved 30 feet north onto a new foundation in 1979. The final regular service for St. David's United Church was held on December 18, 1994, but an annual service continued to be held every summer until 2001. The church was then moved to Oak Lake to be part of a local museum that officially opened on July 23, 2006.
