Conference office files

Series consists of a variety of records relating to the administrative role of the Saskatchewan Conference office, overseeing and supporting the work of presbyteries and local United Church congregations and missions in Saskatchewan. Records in this series appear to have been received in one group and reflect the range of activities administrative and field staff was involved in, especially from the 1950s through the 1970s.

Files primarily contain correspondence, reports, and related materials documenting: financial grants and loans made to support church congregations and their work; research and educational projects undertaken within the Church (and with external partners); meetings and decisions of various committees, task groups, boards and divisions; training and staff job descriptions; information and statistics from presbyteries; activities of the General Council; mission work among indigenous people on several Saskatchewan reserves; training and placement of student and lay ministers and missionaries; titles, grants and property information for various churches; newsletters and small scale publications from the Conference and its committees; youth outreach activities; and information about the operations of various incorporated ministries in Saskatchewan, including the Prairie Christian Training Centre (PCTC), Oliver Lodge, the United Church Housing Corporation of Regina, and several youth camps.
