Rev. Dr. Garry van Bruchem -


Garry was called to Fonthill United Church in January of 2006.


Garry is soon coming to the 40th anniversary of his ordination. After 13 years of ministry in Fonthill, he gave notice of his intention to retire from full-time ministry in January 2020. The Council will therefore use 2019 to advertise the position and search for our next minister. 


Garry lives in Fonthill with his wife Sigita.  They enjoy the great outdoors: camping, hiking, bicycling and kayaking.  

William Outred -


William joined our staff as music director in 2011.  He brings with him 28 years of experience working in many area churches in various denominations.  His love of music began at four years of age, when he sat down at the organ and began to play.


When he’s not at the console, you may find William in our neighbourhood tuning a piano or painting a living room.  Fonthill United has a true love of music and should you stop in for worship, you will hear the rafters shake with the heartfelt singing of a well-trained choir and a congregation that loves to sing. 

Organist and Choir Director

Minister of Word, Sacrament and Pastoral Care

 Patrice Walker -


Patrice has been the secretary/bookkeeper at Fonthill United since 2003. Prior to coming to our church she had many years in the bookkeeping field, including 16 years in the automotive industry in St. Catharines and Burlington, and is delighted to be part of the friendly Fonthill United Church family. She has one son, currently working towards a PhD degree in Economics.
