    Administrative history

    The Calvin United Church was established in 1925 after the creation of the United Church of Canada from a union of Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational denominations. The congregation existed previously as Calvin Presbyterian Church, established in Edmonton in 1914.

    According to the United Church Year Books, Calvin United Church was part of multi-point charges which at various times included Calvin, Avonmore, Forest Heights and Rabbit Hill United Churches. The congregation disbanded and the church closed in 1960.

    Immediate source of acquisition

    In 1975, the Conference entered into a permanent loan agreement with the Provincial Archives of Alberta (PAA) for the physical custody and control of the holdings of the Conference Archives and the records were relocated to the PAA in that same year. The records currently reside at the PAA.
