My name is Rev. Eric Hamlyn and I’m originally from Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
I was raised in the United Church and moved to Vancouver in 1996 to study at the Vancouver School of Theology. I quickly fell in love with BC and after only a few months I knew this would be my home for a very long time.
I am the Minister for Faith and Families here at Lynn Valley United Church and I work primarily with Children, Youth & Families Ministry and the ministry of Spiritual Practices.
I have been with my partner Thomas for over 20 years and an awesome day off for us includes going out for brunch and a long walk around the seawall. I also love sushi and coffee and reading lots of books. I’m an optimist and view life as a total gift from God.
I love creating brave spaces for people of all ages where God’s beloved's feel welcome, safe, valued, nurtured and challenged by the spirit and love of God.
