Administrative history

Herschel Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Kindersley Presbytery. By 1926, it consisted of preaching points at Herschel, Winona, and Spring Lake. In the 1930s, Winona left the charge, while Wiggins and Kingsland joined it. Sometime between 1946 and 1951, the charge joined with Fiske to form Herschel-Fiske Pastoral Charge, with points at Anglia, Fiske, Herschel, and McGee. Around the mid-1950s, the name had returned to Herschel Pastoral Charge, as of 1962, made up of Herschel, Anglia and Stanraer. Eventually, only the Herschel congregation was left and, as of September 15, 2018, Herschel Pastoral Charge itself officially closed.

Administrative history

Anglia Pastoral Charge was initially formed as a United Church mission field in 1925, part of Kindersley Presbytery and containing preaching points at Anglia, Winona and Engen. Around 1926, it became a pastoral charge, with points at Anglia, Camberly, Oliver, and Cleland. By 1932, Anglia joined Fiske Pastoral Charge, which became part of the joint Herschel-Fiske Pastoral Charge, ca. 1951, alongside points at Fiske, Herschel and McGee (previous points Camberlay and Cleland had joined Kingsland Pastoral Charge).

Administrative history

Fiske Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, part of Kindersley Presbytery, with points at Fiske, McGee, Oscaloosa and Spring Valley (the latter was not listed in the charge by 1926). Between 1946 and 1951, the charge joined with Herschel to form Herschel-Fiske Pastoral Charge, with points at Anglia, Fiske, Herschel, and McGee. Fiske appears to have closed around the mid-1950s, with the remainder continuing as Herschel Pastoral Charge (made up of Herschel, Anglia and Stanraer, by 1962).

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. Additions were received by Saskatchewan Conference around the 1990s and 2000.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of textual materials generated by several associated churches and their varying governing pastoral charges: Fiske Pastoral Charge, Anglia Pastoral Charge, Herschel Pastoral Charge, Kingsland Pastoral Charge, and Stanraer Pastoral Charge, as well as predecessors, successors, and constituent churches – their boards, committees and related bodies, and local women’s units.

Contents include: minutes of church boards, stewards, session, congregational and committee meetings; minutes and other records from local Woman’s Association (W.A.) and United Church Women (U.C.W.) groups; Sunday School records; Communion Rolls and related membership records; some financial records and correspondence relating to property; Home Mission Record Books and church registers documenting baptisms, marriages and burials in Fiske, Spring Lake, Hill View, McGee, Anglia, Herschel, Kingsland, Stanraer [Stanrauer], Oliver, and nearby area(s).

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items under A.381.XV.A and A.381.XV.B were arranged and listed as local church records sometime before 1990, with further batches (under XV.SA) added between 1993 and 2000. The fonds was created in 2023, based on historical relationships between the charges, records previously listed and any new accruals.
