Historic Sites of Manitoba: Deloraine Methodist Church / Deloraine United Church (Deloraine, Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

A Methodist Church was built in Deloraine, in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, in 1897. Its congregation united with that of a nearby Presbyterian Church and services were held here. Destroyed by fire in 1951, a new church was built within the walls of the older building in 1952. A bronze plaque listing parishioners killed during military service in the First World War, unveiled on 23 May 1920, was saved from the fire and is displayed in the present church.

Methodist ministers between 1884 and 1915 were Andrew Stewart, William Elliott, T. Ferrier, Wellington Bridgman (1892-?), Chancellor Teeter, Thomas Lawson, T. J. Johnston, J. Holmes Toole, William P. McHaffie, Francis J. Price, and W. McKim Young. The United Church ministers were W. Stanley Owen (1918-1919), J. lrvine Walker (1919-1921), Percy Victor Samson (1921-1926), J. Norrie Anderson (1926-1928), W. Westcott (1928-1929), A. W. Guild (1929-1933), Harry R. C. Avison (1933-1937), Dr. P. E. Scott (1937-1939), John W. Ridd (1939-1940), Tom D.
