Administrative history

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.

Custodial history

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.
