Administrative history

Trinity United Church has existed in Brandon, Manitoba since 1962. The congregation was established to accommodate the growing population in the southeast corner of the city of Brandon. The Inauguration Service for what was then known as the South East Congregation was held on January 28, 1962 in The School of Agriculture building. A month later, the Official Board approved the purchase of land from Mr. Harold Medd for a church building. The Sod Turning Ceremony occurred on September 23, 1962. Although the church began to be used in 1963, the Dedication Service was not held until May 24, 1964 because of slow negotiations with the city in regards to water service and financial difficulties. Trinity United Church is located at the corner of 5th and Richmond Street.
