MISSION CAPSULES: With support from Presbyterians Sharing ... Dr. Rick Allen has served with the Presbyterian Church of East Africa in Kenya for over 20 years. His work has mainly involved conducting and facilitating HIV & AIDS training courses. To date, a large majority of ministers in the PCEA have received training, either through intensive one-week residential courses or as theological students at the Presbyterian University of East Africa, where Rick teaches. Rick will be retiring at the end of 2015. He shares; "I have mixed feelings about ending my time here in East Africa, but I thank The Presbyterian Church in Canada for a very interesting and meaningful experience. With guidance from God, I look forward to the future." We celebrate Rick's faithful and dedicated service in Kenya and pray for him as he transitions into retirement.

HISTORY: Queen Street. Until the early 1840's Queen Street was known as Lot Street. It formed the northern boundary of the town and served as the base line from which the concession roads were counted and park lots were laid out. It was renamed Queen Street in 1844 in honour of Queen Victoria. Victoria Street was named in the same year.
