The existence of a Ukrainian United Church in Winnipeg represented the Ukrainian Canadian population's experience with a Ukrainian form of Protestantism between 1903 and 1961. The geographic focus of the thesis was Winnipeg. There were a number of distinct stages in this church's growth and dissolution. This experience began in 1903 with the founding by Ukrainians of the semi-autonomous Independent Greek Church. The existence of this church was assisted by the Presbyterian Church in Canada. This is a unique all-encompassing piece of Canadian Ukrainian Protestant history outlining the entire life and elimination of this new form of Ukrainian Protestantism. The founding of this church in 1903 set the stage. The growth and eventual disbandment of the Ukrainian United Church in Winnipeg in 1961, by the United Church of Canada, closed this chapter of a distinct and special Canadian institution.
