Carman United Church, originally a Methodist facility, is an exceptional example of an English Gothic Revival church erected in rural Manitoba in the early twentieth century. Designed by William Fingland of Winnipeg, the structure is a captivating interpretation of the style, with brick buttresses, pointed windows and heavily ornamented towers. It also is noted for its outstanding acoustics and stained glass from the Luxfer Prism Co. of Toronto. The church became part of the United Church of Canada after its congregation voted in 1925 to accept union with other Protestant denominations.
