The foundational purpose of the Presbyterian Church Heritage Centre (PCHC) is to preserve and actively convey the many ways members of The Presbyterian Church in Canada have been active in the world, having been inspired by Holy Spirit to live as followers of Jesus Christ.
One of the primary responsibilities of the Presbyterian Church Heritage Centre Advisory Committee is the registration of artefacts, in accordance with Ontario Museum Association (OMA) standards. Linking the artefacts by numbering them and fully describing them in an automated cataloguing system is of paramount importance. The catalogue records will capture information on the artefact classification, description, dates, dimensions, provenance, location in the Centre, history and significance of the artefact and/or the body that created it, and also donor information.
Please take time to discover the Presbyterian Church Heritage Centre. Your ongoing financial support is needed to continue this most worthwhile mission of the Church.
