Hillsview Pastoral Charge
Our Minister

Kathy Highmoor (B.A., M. Div.) was ordained by Maritime Conference on May 24, 1981. She was settled on this pastoral charge effective July 1st, 1981.

A long term pastorate has led to many new things. The trust level is high and so introducing Contemporary Services, new music, etc. has come with little dissension.

"As well we greet with joy and enthusiasm the new statement of faith 'A Song of Joy'. I was thrilled to be a part of the 39th General Council as it was passed."

This year one of our goals follows the 40th General Council's direction. We have as a goal and focus on youth seeking to offer faith formation and embracing the gifts, insights and spirit of youth.

As well we are seeking to explore the larger parish concept, looking to the area north and east of the area the pastoral charge now serve. We have a New Beginnings committee that is seeking to discern if those folk wish to be in dialogue with us and if we would like to build a relationship.

As well both churches, Bowsman and Minitonas, are seeking to strengthen the connections with the wider community. (see the upcoming events)

This is such an exciting time to be in ministry with the Hillsivew Pastoral Charge. We welcome all contact and dialogue.

A New Creed

The New Creed defines quite well our theological perspective.
