Our minister has been the Reverend David Drake. He has been with the United Church of Canada in various locations and differing circumstances as an ordained minister for nearly 25 years now. Previous to St Paul’s United Church in Sidney, David worked in Calgary, Alberta; Beausejour, Manitoba; and Regina, Saskatchewan. He says he loved them all!
Sadly, this is his last month with us as he is retiring at the end of April. During his time with us, we feel he nudged us out of "the way we've always done things" and into the use of modern devices - such as screen displays for services. What with screens and a good sound system, we can even watch movies! David will certainly be missed for his fresh approach to scripture and his forward thinking on current affairs.
Check back as soon as we have more details of who is to be minister(s) during the coming months (until a permanent minister is appointed later in the year).
