Name of creator
Alameda Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Estevan Presbytery and containing preaching points at Alameda, Douglaston and Dalesboro. In the 1950s, Alameda amalgamated with Frobisher to form Alameda-Frobisher Pastoral Charge, with preaching points at Alameda, Dalesboro, Frobisher, and Out-of-Sight. After the closure of the Frobisher preaching point, the charge returned to the name Alameda Pastoral Charge, August 29, 2007.
Name of creator
Frobisher Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Estevan Presbytery and containing preaching points at Frobisher, Ernewein and Rockland. By 1936, appointments were limited to Frobisher and Rockland but Out of Sight was added by 1940.
Original provenance for many of the records in the fonds is unclear. Initial items were transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Additional records were received by Saskatchewan Conference in the 1990s and around 2009.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual materials generated by Alameda Pastoral Charge, Frobisher Pastoral Charge, Alameda-Frobisher Pastoral Charge, their predecessors and constituent churches – boards, committees and related bodies, local women’s units and other groups.
Contents include: minutes of Official Board, Church Council, congregation, session, stewards, managers, committees, Mission Band and Sunday School meetings; local unit records of the Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.), United Church Women (U.C.W.), and Young Peoples’ Society; membership and historic rolls, going back as far as the Alameda and Frobisher Methodist Circuits; a historical sketch of Frobisher Union Church; registers of baptisms, marriages and burials that took place at Alameda Methodist/United Church, Ebenezer, Douglaston, Middleton, Dalesboro, Frobisher Union/United Church, Albany, Earnwein, Out-of-Sight, Rockland. There is also a booklet “My Last Messages to My Frobisher People” (1929), containing a list of sermons by A. Russell.
Immediate source of acquisition
Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items listed under XV.A and XV.B were arranged sometime before 1990 and XV.SA and those under XV.SC were added in batches, ca.1992, 1993, 1995, 1998 and 2009. The fonds was created in 2021, based on historical relationships between the congregations involved and the records previously listed.
