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!

as of April 27, 2021


The Council of Elders met on April 27, and are committed to doing our part to keep one another and our community safe and healthy. We will continue to follow all of the Government Stay at Home orders, and the facility will remain closed to all staff, members, and outside rentals. The facility will continue to be checked daily to comply with the requirements of our insurance policy. I know that this time is difficult for everyone, but if you need additional support please do not hesitate to reach out. I am always here and available for you. Don’t suffer alone, call a friend, a family member or your minister so that you can be reassured of our United Church Creed: “We Are Not Alone!”


Rev. Michelle Down
