    Administrative history

    Norwood United Church was established in 1925 upon the creation of The United Church of Canada from a union of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational denominations. The origin of the congregation is from the Norwood Methodist Church that was established in Edmonton in 1906.

    Norwood United Church existed until 1966 when it amalgamated with nearby Erskine United Church. The newly formed congregation chose to name itself for the neighbourhood in which it was situated and thus was constituted at Norwood United Church (1966-1996).

    Physical condition

    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. Church registers were not transferred until 1983. Records received after 1975 have come from the congregation, church members, or officers of the presbytery or the Conference.


    The materials have been arranged in accordance with the congregational series arrangement plan.
