Name of creator
Moose Jaw St. Andrew's Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, from what had previously been the Presbyterian Moose Jaw St. Andrew's Pastoral Charge.
Original provenance for many of the records in the fonds is unclear. Initial items were transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Further batches of records were added between 1998 and 2015.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual and graphic materials generated by Moose Jaw St. Andrew’s Pastoral Charge and United (formerly Presbyterian) Church, as well as their church boards, committees and related bodies, local units of women’s, men’s and other groups.
Contents include: minutes of official boards and Trustees, Stewards, Session, Council, congregational, committees, Choir and Sunday School meetings; communion and historic rolls; a cradle roll; newsletters, annual reports; records of local Ladies Aid Societies, Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.), Woman’s Association (W.A.) and United Church Women (U.C.W.) groups, men’s groups (Men’s Club and A.O.T.S.) and youth groups, as well as other social clubs; property and building files; various financial records and correspondence; clippings, scrapbooks and files relating to church groups, history and events, such as the ordination of Lydia Gruchy; and registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials held.
Photographs in the collection include prints, postcards, and negatives, showing the church building, its site and features (e.g. stained-glass window), associated individuals and events (e.g. anniversaries).
Immediate source of acquisition
Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items under XV.A were arranged and listed as local church records sometime before 1990 and the accruals (under XV.SA, XV.SC, XV.SR) were added between 1998 and 2022. The fonds was created in 2021, to include records previously listed and any later additions.
