Vancouver, Canada

As a congregation, we are committed, under God, to the faithful preaching of the gospel for the salvation of sinners and the sanctification of the saints ultimately to the glory of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. “Always Preaching Christ” is our motto after the manner of the apostles
(1 Corinthians 1:23).

The history of the Vancouver congregation goes back to 1916 when Rev. Donald Beaton [of the Free Presbyterian Church (FPC), Scotland] was invited by Mr. Hugh Mackay and several other Scottish immigrants to come to Vancouver and conduct services.

In 1922, the Vancouver congregation was formed. Mr. Donald Matheson (a lay missionary) and Mr. Hugh Mackay (elder) sustained the congregation and took the services (1922-1928). Between 1922 and 1952, pulpit supply and other ministerial functions were provided by ministers from Scotland.

Previous ministers include: Rev. Dr. MacDonald, a former medical missionary to Zimbabwe (1952-1970); Rev. Douglas Beattie (Cir. 1975-2002); Rev. Jerold Lewis (2002-2006), and Rev. Fletcher Matandika (2008-2016). 

In 2017, Rev. Norman Van Eeden Petersman began his ministry in the Vancouver congregation.
