Administrative history

Starbuck Presbyterian Church existed in the Manitoba community of Starbuck, located approximately 25km west of Winnipeg in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, from 1904 to 1925. Early church services began about 1885 in a log house in the Holyrood School District, 3 ½ miles southeast of Starbuck. Later the congregation used two other school buildings. In 1886, the field included preaching points at Osborne Station, Ashland and Blythefield. By March 1887 Rev. J. Douglas had agreed to reside at this station and the congregation set about to provide a manse, to be finished in July at a cost of approximately $700. Blythefield (Sanford) separated in 1904, and gave up any claim on church property in return for release from manse debt. In 1889 the congregation decided to build a church in the hamlet of Starbuck. By 1903 they had $1300 promised and on January 17, 1904 the new church opened. Starbuck Presbyterian Church officially joined The United Church of Canada in 1925 to become Starbuck United Church.
