Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This United Church in the Norwood area of Winnipeg was built between 1947 and 1948 to replace an earlier church, formerly the Norwood Presbyterian Church at the corner of Eugenie and Kenny streets, that served local Presbyterians and Methodist after the 1926 union of these churches. Presbyterians who rejected union started a separate Norwood Presbyterian Church. An addition to the building was made in 1951. In 2009, the building was purchased by the Winnipeg Church of Christ.
