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 makes 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 qualified to serve in lay ministry; overseeing education of candidates for ministry; and supervision of members of the Order of Ministry within its bounds.

Four Rivers Presbytery was established in 2012 with the restructuring of Bay of Quinte Conference; it includes many of the pastoral charges formerly part of Renfrew Presbytery. It disbanded on December 31, 2018 with the reorganization of the church court structure. Communities of faith within the Four Rivers Presbytery became part of Eastern Ontario Outaouais Regional Council.
