Biographical history

Methodist work at Anyox began in 1909. In 1916, a Union Church was organized under Methodist supervision. It became part of the United Church in 1925. In 1930, a congregation was established in Stewart as part of the Anyox-Stewart Pastoral Charge. After the mine at Anyox closed and the town declined, the charge became Stewart United Church. The population of Stewart was reduced with the closure of other mines in the area. For a time in the 1980s, a United-Anglican shared ministry, known as St. Mark's Community Church was attempted. The charge was finally closed officially in 1990.

Custodial history

The register of baptisms, marriages, and burials was in the custody of First United Church (Prince Rupert) until ca. 1980.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of a Baptism register (1924-1940), Marriage registers (includes civil) (1924-1941) and a Burial register (1923-1941); Stewards minutes (1930-1940), Official Board minutes (1930-1940) and Congregational Meetings minutes (1930-1940); and a Congregational cash book (1940-1941). Note that the baptism and burial records were begun by Anyox Circuit and continued through Anyox and Stewart United Churches.
