Biographical history

Wawanesa United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Wawanesa, located on the Souris River northwest of Glenboro, since 1925. Its predecessor was a Local Union formed in 1917 between St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and Wawanesa Methodist Church in Wawanesa. The Presbyterian Church, built in 1892, continued to be used as the United Church. The Methodist Church had been moved and then annexed to the Presbyterian Church to be used for church meetings and the Sunday School at the time of Local Union. In 1925, Wawanesa and Chelsea formed a pastoral field with Rev. J.W. Scott presiding. A full basement was added to the church in 1927. A new church was built to replace the original in 1998. At the time of description, Wawanesa United Church, along with Brandon Hills, is part of the Wawanesa Pastoral Charge in Assiniboine Presbytery.
