History/Biography
In November, 1911 a small group of people met at Morton Hall on Edmonds Street, Burnaby to organize a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. David J. Gordon, a student from Westminster Hall theological College was in charge. By 1912, a building was erected on two lots and the name was given “Gordon Presbyterian Church”. A new sanctuary was built in 1956 and due to the increase in the congregation a Christan Education Centre was added in 1974. The longest minister to serve the congregation was Reverend George Philps and his wife Margaret. After twenty-one years, he retired in 1987. In April of 1988 Reverend Charles Scott began serving. Six months later, a fire broke out in the centre portion of the complex. For many months, while reconstruction continued, worship services were held at the Edmonds Community centre for the Retired. In 2001 Reverend Cal MacLeod and his wife Robin joined the congregation. Mrs. Marie Douglas, wife of retired minister, Reverend R. J. Douglas and mother of Missionary to India, Ellen Douglas, started the first Women’s Missionary Auxiliary in 1932. The Ladies Aid Societies have also been an active force in Gordon. In 1957, the original Ladies Aid became known as the Margaret Hall Circle, named after Margaret Philps’ mother who had been an active member. For many years, the COC, Explorers and CGIT were very active and Sunday School classes have been in operation since the beginning. - Information garnered from church's official website
