Historia

Living Skies Regional Council was originally Saskatchewan Conference, one of 11 regional Conferences established by the United Church of Canada General Council at their inaugural meeting, in June 1925. At its first meeting, in October, Saskatchewan Conference designated the Conference Archives, then located at St. Andrew's College (Saskatoon), as its official records repository and appointed the first Conference Archivist. The Archives remained at St. Andrew's College, through to the 1980s.

In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house the growing archival collections with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities for the records. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.

On January 1, 2019, as part of a larger restructuring of the United Church of Canada, Saskatchewan Conference and its seven presbyteries became Region 4. In March, it was officially named Living Skies Regional Council. The mandate and boundaries for the region archives remained more or less the same as the previous Saskatchewan Conference Archives.

Administración de registros y políticas de recolección

Edificios

Living Skies Regional Council does not operate an archives building but rather works in partnership with the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan, to make records available to to the public, via their Public Reference Room.

Fondos

The archival collection contains records of Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregationalist and Local Union Churches within Saskatchewan prior to 1925, and of the United Church of Canada after 1925. Included are records created by local congregations, such as registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials; historic membership rolls and communion rolls; general membership lists; minutes of church boards, committees, and organizations (including women's groups); printed annual reports of local congregations; congregational newsletters; local church histories; correspondence; and photographs. The collection also contains records created by the constituent Presbyteries of the Saskatchewan Conference and by the Conference itself, its staff, officers, committees, and task groups, as well as the personal papers and manuscripts of some associated individuals.

Much of the collection was formed between 1925 and 1986, with additions continuing though to the present day. Some of the early records may have been accumulated and/or acquired prior to the formal 1925 establishment of the United Church of Canada.
