Historic Sites of Manitoba: Transcona Memorial United Church / Transcona Christian Reformed Church / St. George Orthodox Church (121 Harvard Avenue East, Winnipeg)

This wood frame building in the Transcona area of Winnipeg was built in early 1948 for the congregation of the Transcona Memorial United Church, formed five years earlier from the merger of Knox United Church and Yale Avenue United Church. Vacated in 1953 when a larger church building was constructed at the former site of Yale Avenue United Church, this building was subsequently occupied by the Transcona Christian Reformed Church (circa 1965). In 1969, the building was renovated to become St. George Orthodox Church, affiliated with the Romanian Orthodox faith.
