In September 1928, the cornerstone of the Melfort United Church was laid at 220 Burrows Avenue West. The church was dedicated on May 26, 1929 by Rev. G. Glover.
The church was paid for with donations from the congregation in the amount of $16,000 and a mortgage in the amount of $15,850. The mortgage was paid off in 1944 and on December 11, 1944, MUC held a mortgage burning to celebrate.
The Christian Education Centre was added to the church in 1963.
Melfort United Church celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2004.
