as of April 8, 2021


The staff at Edith Rankin are committed to your health and safety, and will once again be compliant with the new governmental Stay-At-Home order.
All staff will be working from home, and available to you through the same contact information. 
Messages and emails will be returned, and all church business will be completed in a timely manner.
If you have trouble reaching someone, please be patient, as there may be technical or internet issues at their end.
The facility will be checked by the custodian every day in compliance with the insurance companies requirements.
I want to thank you in advance for your support of all the staff, as once again, they find new ways to complete their work. 
Please feel free to reach out with your care and support. If you have non-essential business, please consider holding onto that until they are back in the facility and better able to assist you.
The facility is CLOSED, with NO ACCESS for any members. Please respect the Stay-At-Home order, and help to stop this third wave of COVID 19 and its variants.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give me a call.




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!
