Rev. Miriam Bowlby


Miriam Bowlby began ministry at Cochrane Street United Church on January 1, 2011.


Miriam grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia where she attended Edgewood United Church with her family. Miriam always felt that God was calling her to ministry and upon completion of her undergraduate degree at St. Mary's University in Halifax she headed to Emmanuel College in Toronto for her theological training. After she completed her degree, she was ordained by Maritime Conference in 2001.


Miriam had not had the good fortune to come to Newfoundland and Labrador until she was settled on Newtown-Lumsden Pastoral Charge in Bonavista North where the people and the place won her heart. Now she considers Newfoundland and Labrador her home. Over the past few years, Miriam has filled in as Acting Personnel Minister for Newfoundland and Labrador Conference, and Minister at both George Street United Church and Gower Street United Church.


Miriam lives in Mount Pearl with her husband Scott and their two wonderful children Will and Carrie.
