Name of creator
Asquith-Perdue Pastoral charge was formed July 1, 1999, from an amalgamation of Asquith and Perdue Pastoral Charges, in Saskatoon Presbytery. When presbyteries were reorganized, in 2000, the charge became part of River Bend Presbytery.
Name of creator
Asquith Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Saskatoon Presbytery and containing preaching points at Asquith, Poplar Crescent and McTavish. By 1932, the charge had become Asquith-Kinley Pastoral Charge, containing Asquith and Kinley appointments. The name shifted back to Asquith Pastoral Charge by 1936. As of 1962, preaching points were listed as Asquith, Arelee, and Environ (the latter had left or closed by 1969). In 1981, the Arelee point had moved from Asquith to Perdue Pastoral Charge. On July 1, 1999, the charge amalgamated with Perdue to become Asquith-Perdue Pastoral Charge.
Name of creator
Perdue Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Saskatoon Presbytery and containing preaching points at Perdue and Hope Hall. By 1932, the charge had become Perdue-Leney Pastoral Charge, with additional points at Hope Hall, Keppel, and Tweedyside. As of 1962, preaching points were listed as Perdue, Hope Hall, Kinley and Leney. In 1981, Arelee joined Perdue (from Asquith Pastoral Charge); it later closed July 1, 1984. On July 1, 1999, the charge amalgamated with Asquith to become Asquith-Perdue Pastoral Charge.
Original provenance for many of the records in the fonds is unclear. Initial items were transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Further batches of records were added around 1992, 1998, 2016 and 2018.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual materials generated by Asquith-Perdue Pastoral Charge and predecessors, including Asquith Pastoral Charge and Perdue Pastoral Charge, as well as their constituent congregations – church boards, committees and related bodies, local women’s units and other groups.
Contents include: minutes of official boards and councils, Stewards, Session, congregational, committee and Sunday School meetings; records of local Ladies Aid Society, Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.), and United Church Women (UC.W.) groups; minutes of local Canadian Girls in Training (C.G.I.T.) and Explorers groups; various financial records; church anniversary and history files; communion and historic rolls; and a register of baptisms, marriages, and burials held at Kinley United Church and related locations.
Immediate source of acquisition
Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items under XV.A and XV.B were arranged and listed as local church records sometime before 1990 and the accruals (under XV.SA and XV.SR) were listed and added between 1992 and 2018. The fonds was created in 2021, to include records previously listed and any new accruals.
