History

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

In 1953, pastoral charges from part of Abernethy Presbytery (east of Highway 35) were added and the combined presbytery was re-named Abernethy-Yorkton. In 1956, after a merger of Abernethy-Yorkton and Kamsack Presbyteries, the new combined body returned to the name Yorkton Presbytery. The name was changed to Parkland Presbytery in 1992.

In 2000, Saskatchewan Conference went from 10 presbyteries to 7, with each adopting a new name. Most pastoral charges from Parkland Presbytery became part of the new Good Spirit Presbytery.

Internal structures/genealogy

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.
