Name of creator
A pastoral charge is a grouping of churches termed "preaching points" -- each with separate names and governing boards or sessions. These churches are served by one minister. The pastoral charge title usually reflects the breadth of the geographic area encompassing the charge.
Upsalquitch Pastoral Charge is located in Restigouche County, New Brunswick, and consists of preaching places at Robinsonville (St. John’s United Church) and Upsalquitch (St. David’s United Church).
The church at Upsalquitch began as a Presbyterian church taking on the name St. John's in 1917.
At the time of the union of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregational Churches into the United Church of Canada, 1925, the churches now in Upsalquitch Pastoral Charge were in Matapedia Pastoral Charge. In 1949-1950, they became part of the Restigouche Pastoral Charge along with Flatlands, Glen Levit, and Tide Head. Then in 1955, Robinsonville and Upsalquitch became the Upsalquitch Pastoral Charge.
Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.
