CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Rev. Dr. Gordon Matheson was recognized for his 11 years of service as the minister to seniors at Zion Presbyterian Church in Charlottetown on Thanksgiving Sunday.  

Matheson had previously served as senior minister at Zion Church for a 21-year period, during which time the church experienced growth and benefitted from his passion for missions and his Maritime-wide weekly radio broadcasts.

Following his retirement, Matheson enjoyed a brief time of rest before rejoining the congregation as both minister emeritus and minister to seniors.

Both Matheson and his wife Azalia now feel it's time to start cutting back on what has been a lifetime of ongoing service.

Not one to put his feet up, Matheson continues his role as interim moderator and pulpit supply at Nine Mile Creek Presbyterian Church, and is frequently called on for funerals and weddings.
