Name of creator
Arcola-Estevan Presbytery was created from the amalgamation of Arcola Presbytery and Estevan Presbytery, in 1951. In 1973, Arcola-Estevan Presbytery was combined with part of Assiniboia Presbytery, becoming the new Souris Valley Presbytery.
Most records in the fonds were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear, though administrative and committee records may have come directly from presbytery secretaries, committee members, delegates or other associated individuals.
From 1925 through to 1982, the official repository for Conference, Presbytery and local records of the United Church in Saskatchewan was at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon). In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual materials generated by Arcola-Estevan Presbytery, its secretaries, committees and related bodies, in fulfillment of their responsibilities, as outlined in the Manual of the United Church of Canada.
Contents include: meeting minutes (1951-1973); correspondence; statistics; property and treasurer’s records; the record of candidates for ministry; as well as documents from the Pastoral Charge Committee and Rural Evangelism Committee.
Immediate source of acquisition
Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items listed under A.381.XI.D.3 were arranged sometime before 1990.
