Rev. David Shearman, Minister
Shearman serves as the minister of Central Westside United Church.
He has served churches in the Maritimes, Peterborough and Oshawa areas
before coming to Owen Sound in 2000.
Judy Pringle has been leading the choir and playing the organ since the amalgamation of the Central and Westside United churches in 1994. Her music background spans 35 years. She, and her husband Bob operate a dairy farm near Owen Sound. She brings in strawberries for the annual choir summer party.
Jennifer Wilkie has been actively involved with the church since becoming secretary in 1985. She is known by small visitors as the 'sucker lady' as she keeps a string of sweets ready to quiet a fidgety child. She keeps up with administration changes by attending and organizing seminars especially for church secretaries.
Pat Wilkie as custodian has been the building maintenance man at the church since 2000. He coordinates the sound board for services and events as well edits tapes for broadcast. Since the launching our web page in 2003 he has had custody of the church digital camera with which he has taken several of the photos on this and the previous web site. He strums a mean guitar and knows his way around a computer.
Muriel Lush became director of Faith Books Plus in July 2009. Since her early years when she read every book in the Epping school library, through High School in Meaford and McMaster University, Muriel has always loved books. Later she taught at OSCVI and sold World Book Encyclopaedia during her years at home with her children. It was a perfect match when she was asked to be the co-ordinator in 1988 of the new Grey Presbytery Resource Centre located in our church basement. When Central Westside took over the resource centre, Muriel became director of the new Faith Books Plus. She continues to choose books and other interesting resources you will love to use.
