How We Work

Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team, 10 enthusiastic volunteers plus our minister, inspire and oversee the running of this place. Meetings begin by lighting the same Christ candle used in Sunday worship, reminding us to listen for the Spirit’s nudging and linking us to the congregation and community we serve.


We have just a few. They are elected by our annual congregational meeting.

Trustees hold our congregation’s property in trust for the benefit of our own congregation and the wider United Church of Canada.

Property is who we call when the roof leaks or a toilet backs up – they keep this old dowager of a building in good repair.

Ministry & Personnel is the team that offers support and accountability to all our staff: ministers, admin, music, and caretaker.

Ministry Groups

Someone has an inspiration, draws others with that inspiration around them, checks out with our Leadership Team whether that inspiration is a “good fit” with our congregation’s ministry, and, with approval, gets to it! A few examples:

Prayerfully Knitting (prayer shawls and other tangible expressions of our care)

Green Team (no disposables used here!)

The CFR Gardeners

Pastoral Care Team

ARTs-fest Team

Alleluia Singers

"I don’t know if I believe in God or not, but for an hour a week, this is a good place to think about that."
