Administrative history

Cote Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, as part of Kamsack Presbytery. It primarily consists of the Cote preaching place. In 1984, the charge joined the new Plains Presbytery, which became part of the All Native Circle Conference when it was formed, in 1989.

Custodial history

Original provenance for many of the records in the fonds is unclear. Initial items were transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of textual materials generated by Cote Pastoral Charge, its predecessors and constituent churches – their boards, committees and related bodies, local women’s units and other groups.

Contents include: minutes of church session and Manse Building Committee meetings; minutes and financial records of local Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.) and United Church Women (U.C.W.) groups; correspondence relating to church buildings; a communion roll; and church records documenting baptisms and marriages in the area. Cote Reserve, Crowstand [Mission], Kesekoos, and Kamsack are among the congregations and communities identified in this fonds.
