Pastor: Rev. Denise Allen-Macartney was ordained at Gloucester Church in September, 2009 and continues to develop her role in the church and the community.
A long-time student of the Bible with a strong background in Faith leadership, she enjoys helping people connect with God and engage in His work. “Whether we direct
a business, drive a taxi, practice medicine, work for the government or raise a family, God invites us to partner faithfully with him,” says Pastor Denise.

Leader – Youth and Family Outreach Program: Prince Owusu is a PhD candidate at Carleton University’s School of Social Work. He is a follower of Jesus with a strong passion for children and youth ministry. He volunteered for many years as a Sunday School Teacher and a Youth Leader in his country of origin, Ghana, before moving to Canada to further his studies. Since migrating to Canada in 2014, he has been an active member of Gloucester Presbyterian Church, volunteering as a Sunday School Teacher before his appointment as Family and Youth Outreach leader in September, 2017. In his new position, his goal is to foster collaborations among youth and families, pray for them and offer spiritual guidance where necessary. Prince currently runs a biweekly youth group on Sundays at Gloucester Presbyterian Church, which offers opportunities for youth to explore biblical truth in their faith walk with Jesus, in a friendly and safe environment with lots of food and fun. He is also actively involved in reaching out to families in the surrounding neighbourhood, through Messy Church—a new, vibrant, practical and collaborative way of following Jesus.

Church Secretary: Christine Hywarren began work at the church in 2011. She feels
blessed every day to have a “job”, that is a bit more than that. She finds her detail management skills valued and her own sense of following God’s direction not only welcomed, but considered an asset.
