Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This church building at Napinka, in the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada, was dedicated in late 1899. By July 1917, the Presbyterian and Methodist congregations had decided to unite, with services held in the Methodist church while the Presbyterian church would be used as a school. Sometime after 2011, the building was demolished and its steeple was saved for display.
