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 within 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; overseeing education of students looking forward to ministry and supervision of members of the Order of Ministry within its bounds. Kent Presbytery was established in 1925 within the boundaries of the London Conference. Prior to 1925 the Kent Presbytery was called the Presbytery of Chatham within the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Kent Presbytery disbanded on December 31, 2018 with the reorganization of the United Church of Canada governance structure. Communities of faith within the Presbytery boundaries became part of Antler River Watershed Regional Council.
