The Fort Garry United Church was constructed between the years 1947 and 1961. It evolved, through a series of additions and renovations, in a manner that mirrored the growth of the Fort Garry neighborhood and the new housing development of Wildwood.
In 1947 the existing building was moved to the corner of Lyon Street and Point Road and subsequently renovated and expanded to include a full basement and Church Hall. In 1955 George Stewart designed the Sanctuary addition and the 1947 structure was repurposed for meetings and Christian education. The last addition of a new Christian Education wing, in 1961, was designed by Ward and MacDonald. A consistent use of exterior finish materials (red brick, painted trim), and a relatively similar scale, aims to visually marry each addition, with a large rectangular vestibule connecting both Sanctuary and Hall.
