Biographical history

Swan Lake Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Swan Lake, located about 70 km east of Carman, from 1896 to 1925. The mission appears to have been served by supply ministers as early as 1888, but the first recorded minister assigned to Swan Lake was William Henry Leach in 1902. The Swan Lake Methodist Church was opened in December of 1897. The circuit also included the Swan Lake Reserve, Beaconsville and Somerset. In 1925, Swan Lake Methodist Church officially joined The United Church of Canada with Swan Lake Presbyterian Church to become Swan Lake United Church. The Methodist Church was used as a church hall until it became the Masonic Lodge.

Custodial history

The records of Swan Lake Methodist Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers of records from Rev. Silman in 1978 and from the Pastoral charge in 1987.

Scope and content

The records of Swan Lake Methodist Church held at the conference archives include: membership roll (1902-1924); records of the Quarterly Official Board (1902-1918); and records of the Trustee Board (1902-1922).
