Name of creator
St. Paul’s United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Beausejour since 1925. Its predecessor was the Beausejour Presbyterian Church built in 1904. The Presbyterian Church continued to be used after Union. The two-point charge between Beausejour and Tyndall that began in 1915 also continued. Garson, was added to the charge in 1926. During the 1930s and 1940s services were conducted by students and supply serving the communities of Beausejour, Garson, and Tyndall as well as Hezelridge, Dugald, and Anola. In 1958 the Beausejour Charge was expanded to include Whitemouth and Seven Sisters and an ordained minister was called to serve this charge. It was then to be known as the Springfield Pastoral Charge to commemorate the mission of Springield United Church, which had closed in 1951. In 1953, the property on which the church stood was sold to the Royal bank. The Church gilding was moved and placed onto a basement at Third and Gertrude. The extension and renovations begun at that time were completed in 1956. In 1959 the church was officially renamed St. Paul’s United Church. In 1966 the Springfield Charge was once again reduced to the two points of Beausejour and Tyndall and again was known as Beausejour Charge. St. Mark’s, Tyndall appears to have closed after 1996. Beausejour and its associated preaching points were part of Winnipeg Presbytery until 1963 when Selkirk Presbytery was created. A new St. Paul’s United was dedicated on September 16, 1990.
The records of St. Paul's United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers from the Beausejour Pastoral Charge in 1982, 1984, and 1993.
