Historic Sites of Manitoba: All Souls Unitarian Church / Bethel Mennonite Church / St. Demetrios Romanian Orthodox Church (103 Furby Street, Winnipeg)

This church at the corner of Furby Street and Westminster Avenue in Winnipeg was designed by architect John Danley Atchison and built in 1913 by contractor Aaron Grey for the congregation of All Souls Unitarian Church. In 1945, it became Bethel Mennonite Church. The Mennonite Bible College was started in its basement in 1947 and operated there until 1949. The Mennonite congregation moved out in 1955 and, the following year, it became St. Demetrios Romanian Orthodox Church.
