Administrative history

Regina St. Andrew's Pastoral Charge was formed as a new United Church charge in 1925, from what had previously been a Presbyterian field. On June 30, 2014, the church was closed and the congregation amalgamated with Knox-Metropolitan.

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. Various additions were received in 1992, 1998, 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of textual materials generated by Regina St. Andrew’s Pastoral Charge and constituent churches – boards, committees and related bodies, local women’s units and other groups.

Contents include: minutes of church council, official board, trustees, sessions, stewards and various committee meetings; records from meetings of local Ladies Aid Society, Women’s Missionary Society (W.M.S.), Women’s Federation, United Church Women (U.C.W.) and Young Peoples’ Union (Y.P.U.) groups; historic and communion rolls; financial ledgers; and registers of baptisms, marriages and burials. There are also 14 photographs, showing church choir members and the following ministers: Rev. William A. Guy, Rev. Archibald Young, Rev. Harry Joyce, Rev. Frank H. Morgan, Rev. W. J. Moore, Rev. Wm. G. Armitage, Rev. Cecil W. Tiller, Rev. Alan L. Armstrong, Rev. D. Elton Adams, Rev. Ronald H. Sutton.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


Original order for many of these records is unclear. Items under XV.A and XV.B were arranged and listed as local church records sometime before 1990 and those under XV.SA and XV.SC were added between 1992 and 2004. The fonds was created in 2021, to include records previously listed and any new accruals.
