Edith Rankin Memorial United Church
A United Church of Canada congregation located in the west end of the city of Kingston, Ontario, we strive to be a caring, friendly, inclusive presence in our community. We seek to discover and live out the “Good News” of Christ within our community of faith, our neighbourhood and our world. Here we share our insights, skills and experience as together we journey on the path toward the wholeness to which God is calling us all. Through the wide variety of programs we offer, we seek to nurture and celebrate each other at every stage of our lives, from young children to our “classic” seniors. If you are seeking a congregational home, we invite you to the Edith Rankin Memorial congregation!

Many of our friendship and study groups continue to meet online using RingCentral Meetings. Contact your group leader for more information. We also continue to care for one another and our neighbours through phone, email and online meetings.

We are very pleased to welcome a new minister to Edith Rankin Memorial United Church, the Rev. Michelle Down. She joined us on September 1, 2020.
Since the church building is not yet open for in-person gathering, we are creating other ways for us to get to know one another. Michelle will be hold online “office hours” using our RingCentral Meetings platform; members are invited to drop in for an online conversation. See Tidings for specific times and the meeting link.
Michelle also participates in our weekly pastoral care and friendship online gathering along with our supply minister Joe Ramsay Wednesday mornings at 11 am. Check the Tidings newsletter in your email for the link to join. You will also find short video blogs from Michelle on our Facebook page. To interact with each other and join in conversation with our ministers, join our Facebook Fellowship Group.
And of course we will all get to know Michelle as she leads worship service Sunday mornings at 10 am. The link for our worship services is also sent by email in our weekly Tidings newsletter.
