Name of creator
St. Paul's United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Boissevain, located northeast of Deloraine, since 1925. Its predecessors were St. Paul's Methodist Church and a portion of the Presbyterian congregation that chose to enter Union. The Methodist church building, located at the corner of South Railway and Johnson Street, continued to be used as the United Church. The Rev. R. E. McCullogh was the first United Church minister. Primrose joined the charge in 1927, and Dunallen was added in 1935. Both were dropped in 1950, to be replaced by Wassewa in 1956. A Christian Education Building was built in 1967. Wassewa left the charge in 1976. Since then, St. Paul's United has remained a one point charge.
The records of St. Paul's United Church came to the Archives of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from St. Paul's United Church in 1983; 1985; 1989; 1990 ;1993, and from Doug Flanders Church in 1986.
