Music plays a central role at Rideau Park United. Choral and instrumental – please check out our Music Ministry.


Rideau Park provides a number of ways in which to experience and enhance your sense of spirituality. The Rideau Park Healing Pathway Ministry is offering a Healing Circle each Sunday morning after the live-streamed worship service, starting at 11:15 am and running for about ten minutes. For the instructions, including the link to the YouTube video, click here: Healing Circle Instructions.

Groups to Join

Rideau Park can seem like a big community where it is difficult to get to know people. One way of feeling more connected is to join a smaller group of people who share a common interest or experience. Speak to one of the ministers if you would like to find a small group that matches your interests.

At Rideau Park, we have a commitment to share our faith with others in the community by modelling Jesus’ love and acceptance. The Social Action Outreach committee oversees a variety of programs and partnerships with other social agencies, but the Christian Development Committee, UCW, Scouts, Youth Bible Study, Sunday School and other church groups also engage in projects benefiting the community and the world.

Ways to make a difference in the community

We partner with:

  • Heron Emergency Food Centre,
  • the Blair Court, Russell Heights and Banff Community Houses,
  • Alta Vista Community Association,
  • South East Ottawa Community Health Centre,
  • the Multifaith Housing Initiative
  • the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB)

Through the United Church of Canada, and the Mission and Service Fund, we engage in global ministry with church partners in Canada and around the world. Our Mission and Service Fund givings provide emergency assistance in natural disasters, support schools and hospitals in underprivileged areas, interfaith dialogue and peacemaking in times of war.

HARMONY CLUB is a monthly social gathering for 60+ years old, and is not limited to Rideau Park Members, so if you have friends or family that would be interested please bring them along. In the past, the Harmony Club format was lunch followed by a speaker, but we are going to start with a coffee/tea social on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at 10am in the church parlour. This will give us all an opportunity to reconnect and discuss what the future of Harmony Club will look like. There will also be a hymn sing.  Harmony Club will not meet in December 2022 or January 2023. The church is wheelchair accessible. For more information, please call the office at 613-733-37-156 ext. 229.
