History of Tabusintac Pastoral Charge

Posted by on Jan 13, 2015 in Archives Committee, Featured Congregations | 0 comments

History of Tabusintac Pastoral Charge

The Presbyterian tradition in Tabusintac has long roots. In 1828, the settlement of Tabusintac had applied to the Glasgow Colonial Society for a schoolmaster and catechist. By 1832, a new church had been built at Church Point. Rev. Simon Fraser was the first minister sent out to Tabusintac and the congregations of Bay du Vin and Black River in 1834. Rev. Fraser remained in the area until 1840, also ministering every third Sunday to a congregation in Kouchibouguac. By 1836, the Tabusintac Church was completely finished and incorporated and a...

An Archival Mystery

An Archival Mystery

Intrigue in the Archives! The other day I was going through some records when I noticed a reference to a sermon book of a Rev. John James Teasdale.

New Years, 1929

Ok, so the title is a bit of a stretch since the date of the following newspaper cover is obviously not New Years 1929 but January 2 is close enough, right?  And in case you’re wondering, there’s not really any significance attached to 1929. I just happened to have the 1929 edition of The United Churchman out for another reason and the book is so big that I figured I might as well get another scan from it while I had it out. In any case, it’s kind of neat to see what was happening at the start of a new year some 85 years...

The Fireside Club was based out of St. David’s Presbyterian/United Church in Saint John and was a men’s club which held Bible studies as well as debates. This card is actually a mash-up of two different cards; one from 1913 and one from 1915. Merry Christmas to...

This is the ninth year that Maritime Conference has negotiated a video licensing agreement with Criterion Pictures and Audio Ciné Films Inc. We are able to offer a similar opportunity this year with the cost remaining the same as last year.
