Administrative history

In 1916, Archbishop Matheson in his Charge to Synod reported that new churches have been build at Morse Place, East Elmwood, Bird's Hill, Cromer, and Stockton. This is the first mention of East Elmwood in the Synod Journals. Thereafter, Emmanuel Church, East Elmwood, appears until 1936 and afterwards vanishes from the records. Emmanuel Church is usually associated with (A.93) St. Saviour, Morse Place. The only clergyman named in the Synod Reports is The Rev WR Johnson, who also cared for St. Saviour's in 1927. Mr DJ Campbell is listed as the lay-reader in charge of Emmanuel Church, East Elmwood in 1924. There are two parish registers. The first entries are in 1917 and the last entries in 1934. The funeral services, by the way, took place in funeral homes except for one in St. Saviour's Church. The weddings were either in the church of in private homes. The Vestry book record of Sunday Services begins on 2 January, 1916 and ends in 1934. In 1918 it records that "From October 13th to Nov 24th inclusive, the church was closed by Order of the City Health authorities owing to the serious epidemic of influenza." On 20 August, 1934, there was a service of commissioning for Miss Searle to China. Archbishop Isaac 0. Stringer presided. For the most part, the Vestry book contains a list of names of ministers and of the services which they conducted. The theology students often boarded with families in the district during the summer months when the College was closed. John Evans is still remembered for his bicycle which he loaned to the local boys. The building was described as a "a little prairie church", wooden with siding and seating perhaps 50 people. Henderson's Directory for 1932 gives the address as 671 Union. People's memories place the church on Martin a little west from Gray near the present site of the King George V School. This was a very rural district in the 1920s and 1930s, surrounded by prairie and patches of thick bushes.
