Rev. Bev Sumbler
commenced her role as Westdale’s new
minister on January 2, 2015.
"I see that my role as your ordained minister is to be your spiritual leader who walks alongside each of you uplifting God's gift of great hope
into all the places that God calls us to be. The prospect of journeying together toward God's call for us not only excites me
but also gives me great pause to thank God for the journey and the privilege of it."

There is a welcoming and inviting atmosphere at Westdale for
both the young and the young-at-heart and our congregation
continues to be robust and sustains a healthy level of
attendance. Sunday services often include special musical
presentations and multi-media to enhance the worship experience.
A visitor, we would hope, can find both a warm welcome, yet
stimulating worship experience, supplemented by an opportunity
to develop new friendships and become part of a number of
supportive activities. Westdale has an amazing track record of
leadership and dedicated volunteers. Members have come to
believe in their church and in their faith providing them with
that all important anchor in their lives which helps them live
their lives with hope and joy each day. Come in and join the
journey of spiritual growth!
