Biographical history

St. James United Church has existed in Winnipeg since 1929. St. James United Church resulted from the amalgamation of Hampton Street United Church and Parkview United Church. Upon union, the St. James United Church congregation met in the Parkview United Church structure and the Hampton Street United Church building was sold. The former Presbyterian minister of Hampton Street Church, Harry Duckworth, became the minister of St. James United Church. St. James United Church is located at 234 Parkview Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Custodial history

The records of the Dauphin Pastoral Charge came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of two transfers of records from the charge in 1996 and 1998. While the run of Sacramental Registers appears to be reasonably complete for most congregations there are significant gaps in the records of church management, such as the records of the Official Boards, Sessions and the Committees of Stewards. The records of Lay Associations, specifically women's groups, are usually more complete.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of documents created by the congregations of the St. James Presbyterian Church-St. James United Church and includes the following series: Sacramental Registers, 1898-1929; Membership Rolls and records of the Session, 1898-1929; Annual Reports, 1923-1926; records pertaining to church property, 1915-1928; and records of Lay Associations, 1904-1929.
