Kingston is the place Peter call home. His second appointment as a pastor was to the Kingston Standard Church in 1979. He pastored there until 2013. During that time he and Cyndi raised two boys who are now married. Their oldest son and family live in Halifax. Their youngest son and daughter-in-law lives in Pittsburgh PA. They visit family as often as possible. Peter served for 6 years as District Superintendent of the Central Canada District of the Wesley Church of Canada. He retired from that position in 2019. He and Cyndi run and walk together. They ran a 5km run in Pittsburgh with their son and daughter-in-law which was held on American Thanksgiving. Peter also plays squash at the YMCA plus he does a bit of weight training. He and Cyndi desire to be available to be used by God to minister to our family, to his Church, and be witnesses to the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Peter counts it a privilege to serve the Polson Park Free Methodist Church as a transitional pastor.

As a community of believers, we at Polson Park Church live by a set of core values that describe our attitudes, beliefs, and actions. Our mission and vision are built on these values, which also help to define our objectives and goals and provide a framework for decision-making and action. Our guiding core values are grounded on biblical principles and express our dedication to both our community and our faith. These principles, in our opinion, are fundamental to building a welcoming, encouraging, and mission-driven church community. At Polson Park Church, we strive to live out our fundamental core values in everything we do, so they are more than just words on a page.
Developing a heart’s cry for God’s presence and Kingdom to be more fully realized. It is birthed out of a passion to know God, see His face and experience His glory.
Our Core Values
Transformational Community- Where lives are changed
Journeying with each other in love and grace, we try to challenge and inspire each person to discover who they are in Christ and the specific purpose He has for them. We want to be a safe place for people to find acceptance and support as they move along in their journey.
Identifying and raising up godly, servant leaders is critical to us becoming like Jesus and having a Kingdom impact. These individuals are voluntary servants, who commit themselves to God’s purpose. They, out of love, use the gifts that are entrusted to them to serve others. They serve, in what they say and do, to help others become servant leaders and Christ followers.
Learning to live in the Spirit and from a Biblical worldview is critical for the believer. We want to equip and encourage one another to develop those habits which create the context for our lives to be empowered and filled with the Holy Spirit. Together we want to grow in our biblical knowledge and understanding so it is the basis of our life practices.
Breaking past the confines of exclusive Sunday morning worship to living a life of faith and obedience in which our every word, thought, and action becomes a praise offering to God so He alone is glorified.
