Biographical history

Sturgeon Creek United Church has existed in Winnipeg since 1930. The predecessors of the Sturgeon Creek United Church were St. James Methodist Church (c.1908), Sturgeon Creek Methodist Church (1908-1912), Jubilee Methodist Church (1919[?]-1925), and Jubilee United Church (1925-1930). In its formative years, the Sturgeon Creek congregation participated in a charge with St. Charles and Rosser. The St. Charles Mission (c.1893), comprised of Headingley, St. Charles and Rosser, moved east to become the St. James Methodist Church around the turn of the century. The exact date at which St. James Methodist became Jubilee Methodist Church is unknown. Jubilee Methodist Church joined the United Church of Canada to become Jubilee United Church in 1925. In 1930, Jubilee United Church changed its name to Sturgeon Creek United Church. A new Sturgeon Creek United Church was built and dedicated in 1949. A larger church was later constructed in 1963 at its present-day location on Thompson Drive. Sturgeon Creek United Church was part of a four-point charge with Headingley, St. Charles and Charleswood named 'Sturgeon Creek Pastoral Charge' from 1933 until 1954. Sturgeon Creek then became a self-supporting charge. Sturgeon Creek United Church is located at 207 Thompson Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
