Families and Song make great community!
Describe your image.
We're glad you're here! St. Paul's is an inclusive community of diverse individuals and families seeking to follow Jesus by practicing hospitality, working for justice, and seeking a closer relationship with God and neighbour.
And we have fun, too! Music, special events, parties, study groups, walkathons, and sometimes, just clownin' around.
The Search for a New Minister
Rev. Dan has accepted an appointment with another church and, after six years as our minister, has left for new challenges at East End United in Toronto.
We have had the privilege of having Karen Chandler as our pulpit supply since early 2021 and she has provided wonderfully engaging and thought-provoking sermons every Sunday for us. The search team made a recommendation to the Board that Karen continue to support the ministry and mission of St. Paul’s and further enable her to complete her field placement with us. To do that, SPUC will be applying to be designated as a Supervised Ministry Education Site (SMES).
Karen is currently an M.Div. student at Emmanuel College and we want to help her in her journey to become an ordained minister. These modifications will allow Karen to stay with us while she continues her education. She benefits because she will have a home that will allow her to refine her skills towards ordination with loving support from our congregation.
St. Paul’s will benefit because we will secure her talents and leadership for the coming months.
More information will be shared in September when the Committees within Shining Waters Regional Council and the Office of Vocation/Candidacy Board meet again on matters such as these.
We're pleased to welcome Karen Chandler as our pulpit supply preacher and worship leader.

Rev. Debbie Johnson, a retired minister with the United Church of Canada is available to provide Pastoral Care as needed.
