Rev. Neil BaxterFor decades, Rev. Neil Baxter, has been a part of our mission to the Clarence Rockland Community.

Rev. Baxter rejoined us in 2010 to continue his ministry in counseling and out reach, and has been volunteering wherever he can apply his skills and experience to serving the Lord with us.

At the end of 2016, Neil withdrew from ministry activities for health reasons. We hope and pray that he is able to re-rejoin us in our fellowship together when his health and the weather improve.

Here is a bit of background for those who did not experience Neil’s Ministry prior to his retirement.

Jacquie Hawken, Music Coordinator

I am a retired Grade 8 teacher, with lots of volunteer experience as choir director, accompanist, and church musician. My husband, Bill, served in the Canadian Military for many years, so it was often my privilege and pleasure to work with both Catholic and Protestant Chaplains on various bases in Canada and overseas, to co-ordinate their music programs. "Making a joyful noise unto the Lord" is a favourite pastime of mine, but the joy is magnified when others join in. If you have a favourite hymn, or would like to work with us as part of the choir, or if you can bring a musical gift to the worship program at the church, please contact me on Thursday evenings at 7 during choir practise, on Sunday mornings, or through email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
