Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Ouens Pentecostal Church / St. Ouens Country Church (St. Ouens, RM of Brokenhead)

This Pentecostal church near St. Ouens in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead was constructed in 1964, although the origins of the congregation go back to the 1920s when it met at the old Wurch farm. The first church building was built in 1932 at the southeast corner of Roads 70N and 44E. After the new church opened, the original building was moved to the Springfield Hutterite Colony and its former site is now an open pasture.

A private Christian school, St. Ouens Christian Academy, operated in the church’s basement between 1984 and 1993. In 2008, the church was renamed St. Ouens Country Church. An affiliated cemetery is situated about two miles due south.
