Records of ministerial and lay associations

The Toronto Ministerial Association of the United Church of Canada was active from at least 1934 and was later renamed The Toronto and Toronto District Ministerial Association in 1944. The association, made up of ministers from presbyteries in Toronto would meet monthly. Speakers were regularly planned to discuss theology and social issues, including temperance. Beginning in the 1930s, the Ministerial Association established a Committee on Assistance to Coloured Churches. This Committee collected funds for mainly the British Methodist Episcopal Church and the African Methodist Episcopal churches in Toronto until the early 1940s. The Association began to meet infrequently by mid 1960s. It is unknown when it officially disbanded.

The principal function of the Toronto Conference Lay Association was the planning of the Conference annual meeting. The Lay Association disbanded in 1963 following General Council’s assignment of these tasks to the Coordinating Committee for Lay Activities.

The Minister’s Wives Association was active at least from 1932. The association disbanded after their 1979 April 25 meeting due to declining membership.
