Nancy Talbot 2019

Reverend Nancy Talbot – Lead Minister

Nancy has been the lead minister at Mount Seymour since 2004. Ordained in 1995, she has a natural, unpretentious way of leading worship, a spontaneous sense of humour and a passion for helping people connect with their faith in ways that shape and form their living.

She is curious about new and creative ways of being church while staying rooted in the Christian tradition and is always up for a good theological conversation. A practitioner of Ignatian Spirituality, she values exploring the many ways people connect with the sacred both inside and outside of the church.

Nancy lives in North Vancouver with her partner Brenda, their two children Nathan and Joel, and their new little dog Georgia.
