    Administrative history

    The Highlands United Church was established in 1925 with the creation of the United Church of Canada from a union of Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational denominations. It was a reconstitution of what had been Highlands Methodist Church, established in 1912. Highlands United Church is situated in Edmonton Presbytery.

    Custodial history

    Records deposited under accession number PR1975.0387 were acquired sometime prior to 1975 however there is no surviving record of the details. 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 Conference transferred the church registers to the PAA in 1983 under accession number PR1983.0285 and there is no surviving record of the details of acquisition. Records received after 1975 have come from the congregation, church members, or officers of the presbytery or the Conference.
