The former McConnell United Church building, in the community of McConnell in the Municipality of Hamiota, has been renovated into a private residence but appears as of late 2011 to be vacant. Originally situated at Chumah, the building was brought here following the destruction by fire of the original McConnell church, on 23 May 1954. It reopened for services on 2 November 1955 and closed on 20 August 1972.
