Administrative history

Presbyteries in the United Church of Canada are courts of the Church within geographical boundaries made up of a number of Pastoral Charges. Presbytery membership consists of ordained ministers of the Charges within the Presbytery, United Church lay persons, and corresponding members. A grouping of Presbyteries within a larger geographical area make up a Conference, a higher court of the Church. The functions of the Presbytery include: overseeing Pastoral Charges in its bounds, including the designation of new Charges; receiving and disposing of petitions and appeals from lower governing bodies or courts; transmitting the above to higher bodies or courts; licensing lay persons recommended after examination; supervising education of students looking forward to ministry and to have oversight of conduct of members of the Order of Ministry within its bounds. Waterloo Presbytery was established within the boundaries of Hamilton Conference in 1969 following the dissolution of Guelph Presbytery. The Presbytery closed on December 31, 2018 with the reorganization of the church court structure. Communities of faith within the Presbytery became part of Western Ontario Waterways Regional Council.
