We have two levels of leaders in the church – our minister and the Church Council.
Our minister Rev. Anne Hines uses no notes when she preaches. During service, she engages us directly with heart, soul, humour and scintillating lucidity: “She can deliver those moments where everyone is quiet after a sermon because they have been so profoundly moved”. Rev. Hines emphasizes belonging rather than believing, loving rather than judging. We feel very fortunate indeed to have Rev. Hines as our minister.
EHP is formally run by the congregation’s church council. The council is the governing body, and is in charge of hiring and keeping the church on the tracks financially. The council’s chair person this year is Joan Awrey a long time congregant and very active volunteer.
