Web Archives Search Tips

The United Church of Canada General Council Archives captures websites run by the General Council, Regional Council Sites and the now retired Presbyteries and Conferences through the Archive-It platform.

The web archives do not hold current information. They are intended to preserve the history of the United Church’s online presence. To see updated content, information, and news from the United Church, please visit the current website.
