Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The first Presbyterian church in this region was built just inside the Saskatchewan border, in 1885, and it was used until 1899 when a new church was constructed at the same site. In early 1903, the building was moved to McAuley, in which is now the Rural Municipality of Ellice-Archie, and it was re-dedicated on 4 September 1904. It later became a United church and, in 1930, it joined with a church at Welwyn, Saskatchewan to form a two-point charge.

The church closed in 1997.
