Bring Your Questions!
Church is so much more than a service on the weekend. It’s about connecting with other people, growing in your faith, and building a strong foundation for your family, your community and your future.
We believe that most people have questions; about life, family and meaning – we like to talk about those things. We would love to have you join us for our Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 am and get to know the people that call Southside their home church.
If you’d like in-depth information feel free to read our full statement of faith!
Southside@Main is a member church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada.
Meet The Team
Rev. Ian Campbell
I grew up in Northern Ireland, having been brought here by my parents as a teenager. I’ve lived and worked as a pastor across North America, first in school in Philadelphia and Vancouver, then Ontario. I’ve been busy with my wife AnnaBeth, raising a family; a daughter and 3 sons who now who are parents themselves of our 6 grandchildren. We love family gatherings and trips!
At 200 Main Street I love to hang out with a cup of coffee and chat. We say that there is no conversation that is out of bounds, or over, while there are still ideas to consider. But be warned: I might bring up something Jesus said or did!
Rev. Bryan O'Gorman
Finally, being ordained in 2016, (I’m a little slow – I began the process in 1985!) after a career in logistics, and volunteering for several mission trips along the way, it’s a sheer delight now to be serving as the Assistant Pastor and interim Family Ministries Pastor at Southside. To see children and their families grow, through experiencing God’s love, and to work with talented volunteers, has helped me to be transformed as well. Come join us; be part of God using ordinary people to do extraordinary things together.
I retired in March 2014 but continue in a pastoral role at Southside, and in the community as a volunteer chaplain at Milton District Hospital. I’m occasionally asked to officiate at funerals and lead chapel services at long term care and retirement residences. My wife and I were married in 1969 and emigrated from the UK in 1971. We have two children, who have blessed us with four delightful grandchildren!
Director of Worship & Music
I was a shy kid and would never have imagined leading a congregation in music. But along the way God sent people to encourage me, and situations to use my talents. While at Heritage College, I had incredible opportunities to travel with musical teams across Canada, the US and overseas. Since then I’ve been serving my Southside family as Music Director, along with an awesome group of people on our worship team.
I’m married to Rob who’s the best guy I know! And I’m mom to my two sweeties, Eden and Evatt.
We value everyone’s participation in worship at Southside and invite you to join us as we lift up the name of Jesus and testify to the greatness of our God!
I grew up in a Christian home and made a commitment to Jesus at a Billy Graham crusade when I was fifteen. I was scared to walk forward when they offered the invitation, but I knew then what I still believe… that I would follow Jesus all my life.
I’ve been married to Ian for 25 years and we have two grown children, Ethan & Maisie. As a family, we moved to Canada from England in 2009 and have been attending Southside ever since.
I often play and sing with the worship team, and when I’m not working in the office at Southside, I also teach violin and piano and play in the Milton Philharmonic Orchestra. Got questions? I’ve got answers….call me!

Our Eldership Team
Simply put, our Elders are men and women who have been chosen by us to serve us by providing spiritual oversight. They are prayer warriors, teachers, decision makers and counsellors. They are the spiritual and teaching leaders of the church, who are leading by example as well as legal requirement to function as a proper Board of Directors.
I gave my life to Christ at an early age and have always known that my Christian identity is the central theme of my life and work. I’ve experienced some rough roads on my journey; divorce, single parenting, losing a spouse to cancer and more. And, I’ve also been greatly blessed along the way. I have three grown children that I’m proud of (most of the time ☺), 4 grandchildren (that I’m always proud of) and a husband that is my best friend. I can say with certainty that God is good…all the time!
I’m humbled to be serving Southside as an Elder, after being a member here for over 25 years. I’m beyond excited about the future of the church here in Milton; I believe that God is on the move in our community and I love being able to be part of His plans.
People who know me well would say I have a passion for cooking…and I do. Anne and I have spent many hours in the kitchen serving up food for pot lucks, kids retreats, holiday meals and more. I also have a passion for prayer, for my fellow Christians and for those on their way to God.
I’ve enjoyed leading Men’s Bible studies throughout the years, and I also relish my personal time in the Word. I have a heart for missions and have loved serving at youth camps in Northern Manitoba and Haiti.
Anne and I have been married for 38 years and we’ve got 3 spunky children…all married (Courtney/Dan, Brady/ Krystal, Bronwen/Joel) and 3 equally spunky grandchildren, Brenyn, Emrys, Barrett.
There are exciting days ahead for Southside, you can feel the energy in the air here. If you’re looking for a group of people to work shoulder to shoulder with for the Kingdom, you’ve come to the right place!
Over the years we’ve been honoured to serve in various capacities: myself on the board of elders, Mary leading the children’s ministry, and various responsibilities in between. I’ve come to believe both in my personal, professional, and of course Christian life, that nothing is more important than humble servant leadership.
These days I’m husband to Mary, dad of four kids (six with in-laws), grandpa of two amazing grandchildren, business owner, treasurer at Southside, and lastly… a wannabee golfer.
We’re looking forward to the future for Southside@Main, where we can freshly begin to welcome Miltonians to gather with us around tables of communion, conversation, friendship and challenge. Let’s explore together what it meant when Jesus said he came to show us how we can live extraordinary lives!
I teach in the Beloved Children’s Ministry and participate in our Ladies’ Bible Study where, with the kids and the ladies, we’ve been growing spiritually together. The Lord has also been leading me to a deeper relationship with Him through prayer, so I can better serve Him and others. Serving as one of the first women elders at Southside has been a real blessing to me.
I have been married to my husband Lorne since 1984, and the Lord has richly blessed our family. We have 2 children and one perfect grandchild! Come and join us for coffee and conversation.
