Historic Sites of Manitoba: Parkview Methodist Church / St. James Methodist Church / St. James United Church (234 Parkview Street, Winnipeg)

This brick and masonry church on Parkview Street in Winnipeg was built in 1920. Initially a Methodist church, it became St. James United Church in 1925.

Among the clerics who served at St. James was Francis Walker “Frank” Armstrong (1951-?).

Honour rolls listing parishioners who served and died in Canadian military forces during the First World War and Second World War are displayed at the St. James Legion.
