Diocese of Central Newfoundland
Records of the activities of the Anglican Church in Newfoundland date from the early eighteenth century. In 1976, the Synod of Newfoundland decided to divide the single Diocese of Newfoundland into three separate dioceses (Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Central Newfoundland and Western Newfoundland), each with its own synod. Each diocesan synod maintains an archives where synod, diocesan, and parish records are kept. In most cases, the records pertaining to a particular diocese have been transferred to the Archives for that diocese. However, some records still remain with the Archives for the Eastern Diocese. The Archives for the Central Diocese was established during the May 1989 Synod of the Central Diocese.
The Archives for the Central Diocese of Newfoundland contains records of the Central Diocese and the records of its various parishes including baptismal, marriage, burial, and confirmation certificates. Synod records including parish service records, and minutes of general sessions of vestries and Synod are also available. Correspondence and records containing material of a sensitive nature may be available after consultation with the archivist. The Archives also contains a small number of church artifacts.
