meet the people

So just who are those people at the front of the church, leading the programs and behind the scenes?

David is the newest member of our pastoral team. He is helping us teach and care for our growing community. David summers at his cottage in NB and likes to swim. A former hockey player himself, he can be found enthusiastically spectating his grandchildren’s team sports. Like to chat about your most recent reads? David reads theology books and mysteries.

Music Director
Lianne Dimock

Lianne’s got music in her soul and she has turned it into her hobby, her job and a joy she shares with others.  With a smile on her face, she challenges her choristers to do their personal best. When she’s not at the church you’ll find this proud Mom of three spending time with her kids, most likely in a sub-zero rink.  Music and hockey are two topics that are sure to get Lianne talking!

Office Administrator
Peter Metcalfe

Peter is probably the first person you'll see and the first voice you'll hear.  He makes things happen.  A sci-fi guy, Peter's a big fan of all things Marvel and DC. When he's not ensconced behind his cozy desk you might find him performing his self-appointed duties as chief cook and bottle washer for the Metcalfe clan or catching a game on TV.
