A History of the Presbyterian Church of Canterbury has not hitherto been attempted, except for three chapters on the Early Days in Christchurch, North Canterbury and South Canterbury, in the Rev. J. Dickson's book, The History of the New Zealand Presbyterian Church, which was published in 1899. Jubilee booklets of St. Andrew's and St. Paul's give brief outlines of the story of their development; but otherwise the ground broken in this research has been quite new.
