History

Biggar Pastoral Charge was formed in 1925 as a new United Church charge, part of Wilkie Presbytery and consisting of the preaching point at Biggar, Saskatchewan. As of 1940, preaching points included Crane Creek, Naseby and Salter.

In 2000, the charge became part of Prairie Pine Presbytery and, with the 2018 reorganization, it continued into the new Living Skies Regional Council.
