Name of creator
Stonewall United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Stonewall since 1925. Its predecessors were the Stonewall Presbyterian Church and Stonewall Methodist Church. The United Church used the Methodist church and the Presbyterian church was sold to the Presbyterians who did not enter Union. In 1925, the Stonewall Pastoral Charge included the congregation at Grassmere. Rev. J.E. Lane presided. A new church that incorporated the Methodist Church structure was officially opened November 27, 1927. The entire building was destroyed by fire on March 10, 1978. As a result, most of the surviving records do not predate 1978. The new church, built on the old site, was officially dedicated in June 1982. In 2001, the Brant / Argyle United and Grassmere United congregations amalgamated with Stonewall United.
The records of the Stonewall United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Teulon Pastoral charge in 1978, and from the Stonewall Pastoral Charge in 2003 and 2004.
