The Maritime Conference Archives is mandated to collect, preserve, and provide access to the records of the Maritime Conference of the United Church of Canada. We also have pre-1925 records of the Presbyterian, Methodist, and Congregational congregations in the Maritimes which joined The United Church of Canada in 1925.

Our holdings include records from:

  • The congregations of the Maritime Conference
  • The Maritime Conference office
  • The Presbyteries within the Maritime Conference
  • Pine Hall Divinity Hall (now part of Atlantic School of Theology)
  • Church camps
  • Individuals who have ministered within the churches or held leadership positions in the Conference
