Biographical history

St. James Methodist Church existed in Winnipeg from 1916 to 1925. The predecessor of St. James United Church was the King Edward Street Methodist Church and the successors were Parkview United Church and St. James United Church. In 1906, the original St. James Methodist Church was opened under the guidance of Young Methodist Church. However, this church and area evolved to become the part of the community of Sturgeon Creek. The services that began in 1907 on King Edward Street formed the lasting foundation of the Methodist Church in St. James. In 1916, the name of the King Edward Street Methodist Church was changed to St. James Methodist Church. The church was destroyed by fire in 1919 and rebuilt in 1920. In 1925, St. James Methodist Church joined the United Church of Canada and changed its name to Parkview United Church.
