Needed Items

The Museum welcomes gifts of artifacts and issues receipts for income tax purposes. In particular, the Museum is seeking the following items but considers any item relating to the PCC that would enhance our collection:

  • Mission artefacts
    • brought from overseas countries by missionaries of The Presbyterian Church in Canada and its antecedent denominations
    • the items were usually hand-crafted and unique to the country or culture in which the ministers, evangelists, teachers, doctors, nurses, etc. served
    • the Museum also classifies as mission artifacts those items that are donated to the denomination and/or Museum from indigenous denominations and mission partners who work in association with The Presbyterian Church in Canada
  • Communion tokens – large and small
  • Pictorial plates (contact the Museum for inventory of plates received to date)


We dream of seeking to have our doors open to the public more regularly, to increase the scope of our collection, to provide honoraria for those who give of their time to direct tours, and to hire a part-time curator. We look forward to the day when we can pay costs such as required by these dreams from a firm financial foundation.

We are appealing to friends of the Museum and friends of the late Rev. Dr. John A. Johnston to help us in this dream.

We invite gifts both large and small, bequests and contributions that may enable the continuation and expansion of this, a large part of Dr. Johnston’s legacy to the church.

Your gift may be sent to:
