St Simon’s NV Activities
As Publicity Director for the Vancouver March for Jesus, St Simon’s NV was very involved in the MFJ, with a peak of 18,000 peak marching through the streets of Vancouver.
At the heart of the St Simon’s NV vision is worship: Praising, Serving, Sharing Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
John Leeburn on drums, Frank Dorst, Janice and Ed Hird. Janice as a professional musician from the UBC School of Music is our Music Director at St. Simon’s NV. She has raised up many choirs and worship bands over the years, helping people to go from good to great.
Every Christmas we have a special Christmas Communion at Kiwanis Care Centre, and going carolling through the complex with our St Simon’s NV Choir. We have been visiting Kiwanis for the past 13 years every 4th Wednesday, giving them Holy Communion. John Leeburn was my first assistant, followed by the Rev Ron Gibbs. Marina Ireland is now helping bring people by wheelchair to the service. Other volunteers are always welcome.
A picture taken of myself in 2001 while on a graduation boat expedition with BCCA School where my three sons attended.
After seven years in the Public School system, we switched to Christian School, and involved our sons in a wonderful Drama program at BCCA, led by Mrs. Birth. Two of our sons Mark and Andrew played the role of Tevye and Lazar Wolf in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’.

Dr. JI Packer wrote the foreword, saying “I heartily commend what he has written.” The book focuses on strengthening a new generation of healthy leaders. Drawing on examples from Titus’ healthy leadership in the pirate island of Crete, it shows how we can embrace a holistically healthy life.
