Biographical history

Zion Church existed in Winnipeg from 1874 until 1933. Zion Church was founded in the north end community of Point Douglas by Rev. Young and Grace Methodist Church. The original site of Zion Church was the corner of King and Logan Ave. By 1882, a new church had been built and enlarged at the corner of King and Henry Ave. Bethel Methodist Episcopalian Church amalgamated with Zion Church in 1884. Zion Church again built a new and larger church in 1889 and relocated to Alexander Avenue. The Methodist congregation of Zion Church joined the United Church of Canada in 1925. However, by 1932 the church was in financial difficulties and the Board of Trustees was forced to request permission from Winnipeg Presbytery to sell the property. The following year, Zion Church was sold to Rev. Frank Small and the congregation was officially disbanded. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the church were applied to the debts of Elgin Church and the residue of proceeds were administered according to the conference.
