Biographical history

Young Methodist Church existed in Winnipeg from 1891 to 1925. Early Sunday School services of the congregation began in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Breen. In the Spring of 1891, the Quarterly board of Grace Methodist Church appointed a building committee who selected a site and began construction of a church for the growing Methodist congregation. The church was named after Dr. George Young, a pioneer Methodist missionary of Western Canada. Regular church services began in the first Young Methodist Church building, located on the corner of Furby and Broadway, in 1892. In 1894, the church separated from Grace Methodist Church and Rev. J. H. Riddell was appointed as the regular minister of Young Methodist Church. Plans for a new church began in 1906, and the Sunday school portion of the structure was competed in 1907. By 1911, the original Young Methodist Church structure had been entirely replaced by a larger structure. Young Methodist Church joined the United Church of Canada in 1925, becoming Young United Church.
