History

Swift Current 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 Swift Current Presbytery, which had been part of the Presbyterian Synod of Saskatchewan. Prior to Union, in 1925, there had also been a Swift Current District, in the Saskatchewan Conference of the Methodist Church.

In 1959, the presbytery was amalgamated with part of Assiniboia Presbytery (west of Highway 19) and became Cypress Hills 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.
