UPCSA – Notice of death – Elder David Macdonald


It is with deep sadness to announce that Mr David Macdonald passed away
suddenly on Thursday night, 2 June 2022. His daughter assumes he had a heart
attack. She found him after 9pm that night. May he rest in peace.

The Rev Colin Campbell, Clerk of the Western Cape Presbytery writes, “Elder
David Macdonald made an immense contribution to the Plumstead congregation,
to our Presbytery and to the UPCSA denomination as a whole. We are saddened
by his passing, but take comfort in knowing that he is with his Lord.”
Indeed, Mr Macdonald was known within the denomination as an Elder
Commissioner from Plumstead Presbyterian to the Western Cape Presbytery and
also made his way to the General Assembly. His recent contribution up to the
2021 General Assembly was as a Convener of the Manual Committee. He shared
his legal expertise for the benefit of the Church. He made a contribution to
the writing of the constitution of the new Church Fellowships. That
Constitution was adopted at the 2019 Executive Commission.

The Clerk of the Western Cape Presbytery invites all to “pray for his
family, for the Plumstead Church family, and for the Rev Shaldene Pillay,
minister of Plumstead Presbyterian, and for our Moderator, the Rev Natalie
Barnard who will assist all through this time of grief and sadness.”

The funeral service arrangements will be communicated when they become

Warmest regards,

Rev Dr Lungile Mpetsheni

General Secretary
Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa

Secretary – Africa Communion of Reformed Churches
