Located at the corner of Main Street East and Mountain Avenue in Neepawa, this stately brick church, on a stone foundation, was built in 1897 on a design by Winnipeg architect Samuel Frank Peters. In 2020, the church was put up for sale as its congregation began worshiping with that of the Neepawa United Church. Its rectory is located at 263 Emma Street.
