Your First Visit

1. How should I dress for church?
Comfortably and casually. There is no dress code at Rideau Park and we welcome you just as you are.

2. How will I know what to do at the right time during the service?
At the front door, a greeter will hand you a church bulletin that will walk you through the service.

3. What if I don’t know anyone else who goes to Rideau Park?
Both newcomers and regulars often come on their own. After the service we enjoy Fair Trade tea and coffee, juice and cookies in our church hall, so please join us.

4. How much money should I put in the collection plate?
There is no required donation from you. Should you become a regular, you may want to think about what amount you can afford to contribute towards supporting what we do. No offering is ever considered too small, generosity looks different for everyone.

5. What if I can’t sing very well, don’t know the tune, or don’t want to sing?
There is no obligation to sing along. However, you may find you want to! When we sing our voices join together, and we all sound wonderful! There are song books located in each pew, and the bulletin will tell you which hymns are being sung and when (they are numbered).
