The congregation of First Metropolitan United Church voted Jan. 13 to name Rev. Shelagh MacKinnon as Lead Minister, effective immediately. Shelagh has been serving as supply Minister of Spiritual Care since September 2018.
Shelagh comes to First Met after 20 years as Minister of Bowen Island United Church (the Little Red Church) and was Spiritual Director of the Orchard Recovery Centre on Bowen Island for 15 years. She holds a Masters of Divinity (MDiv.) degree from Queen's University in Kingston, ON and a B.A. from Trent University in Peterborough, ON.
We are delighted that Shelagh will remain as part of the First Met family.
