South Glen­garry’s United Church mem­bers wel­comed their new min­is­ter on Sun­day, April 22.

The Rev. John No­ord­hof, 53, is the new min­is­ter of a two-part charge in the county. He will over­see ser­vices at Salem United in Sum­mer­stown year-round. He will also split his time be­tween two other churches – St. An­drew’s in Bainsville from Easter to Novem­ber and then he’ll spend the win­ter months at Knox United in Lan­caster.

Rev. No­ord­hof, who was ac­com­pa­nied by his part­ner, Rob, at the ser­vice, says that he’s used to min­is­ter­ing in ru­ral set­tings.

Gaz­ing out at the field by St. An­drew’s, he says: “With the sun set­ting, it can be a peace­ful place for wor­ship.”
