Zone de description
Arcola Presbytery was one of the original 16 presbyteries established by the first General Council of the United Church of Canada (June 1925), to be part of the new Saskatchewan Conference. Initial boundaries were based on the previous Arcola Presbytery, which had been part of the Presbyterian Synod of Saskatchewan. Prior to 1925, there had also been an Arcola District, in the Methodist Saskatchewan Conference.
In 1951, Arcola and Estevan Presbyteries amalgamated and became Arcola-Estevan Presbytery.

As administrative groupings of pastoral charges in defined areas, United Church presbyteries included former Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational, and Local Union churches. Presbyteries were governed by a court of lay and ministerial delegates from the charges, but boundary changes had to be formally approved by the Conference.
