Administrative history

Fort Qu'Appelle Pastoral Charge was formed as a United Church charge in 1925, part of Abernethy Presbytery and consisting of preaching points at Fort Qu'Appelle (St. Andrew's United Church), Springbok and Sanitarium. As of 1932, the charge included Wideawake and was (briefly) listed as Fort Qu'Appelle - Sanitorium Pastoral Charge. As of 1936, preaching appointments had shifted to consist of Fort Qu'Appelle, Hughesvale, Fort San and Wide Awake. Lipton was added in the late 1940s and, by 1951, the charge was made up of Fort Qu'Appelle, Fort San and Springvale appointments. As of 1962, only Fort Qu'Appelle and Lipton were listed as part of the charge.

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. Additional records were received by Saskatchewan Conference archives around 1998.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of textual materials generated by Fort Qu'Appelle Pastoral Charge and constituent churches – their boards, committees and related bodies, local women’s units and other groups.

Contents include: minutes of Official Board, Ladies Aid Society and U.C.W. meetings; membership rolls; baptism, marriage and burial registers. St. Andrew’s Presbyterian/United Church (Fort Qu'Appelle), Balcarres, Indian Head, Pheasant Plains, Wide Awake, and Lipton are among the congregations and communities identified.
