Our Mission

St. Paul's Presbyterian Church is a family, commissioned by Christ, gathered together in faith to glorify God and nurture spiritual growth through worship and service.

What’s a Presbyterian?

Presbyterians are part of the reformed tradition within Protestantism. What makes us unique is our church structure. Presbyterian comes from the Greek word for elder. Elders are church members elected by the congregation to play an important decision making role in the church, along with the Minister.

What We Believe

We believe in the sovereignty of God, the authority of scripture, the justification by grace through faith alone and in the ministry of all believers.


Our congregation strongly believes in the idea of supporting groups and causes locally, nationally and internationally - wherever there’s a need.

Over the years, St. Paul’s has: donated children’s Bibles to CHEO; assisted Gracefield Christian Camp and Retreat Centre; helped with the construction of a student hostel in Jobat, India; participated in The Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoeboxes; fundraised for disaster relief around the world; supported health clinics in Gaza, and much more.

On the first Sunday of every month, items are collected for the Salvation Army Food Bank. The children also organize a special Thankgiving collection of school lunch items that are also distributed throughout North Grenville, where there is a need.

History in Kemptville

St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church was built in 1851 and has been actively serving Kemptville and the surrounding area for over 165 years.

While proud of its history and traditions, St. Paul’s is always looking for new ways to meet the spiritual needs of the community.
