At 2 PM Sunday, 13 March 2011, a service of covenanting
for Rev. Barend Bisheuvel, former Summerlea student
minister, took place at Trinity United Church, where Barend
is the minister of the Trinity Anjou pastoral charge. This
involves services at 9 AM at Anjou and 11 AM at Trinity, so
Barend keeps busy.|
The service was arranged by Montreal Presbytery and chaired by Rev. Shaun Fryday, Chairman of Montreal Presbytery and minister at Beaconsfield United Church.
Gary Tompkins of Trinity welcomed Barend. Debbie Poirier, president-elect of Montreal & Ottawa Conference, gave the sermon.
A reception in the hall followed the service.
and asked the choir to lead the sung Amen, which led to a drum accompaniment.
All in all, the service revealed a lively and spirited congregation.
