Ridley Park Presbyterian Church exists to give glory to God through worship, service, outreach, spiritual growth and mutual encouragement.
We seek to live out the call of our Lord Jesus Christ to: Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; and love our neighbors as ourselves. (Mark 12:29-31); and to be faithful to his mandate to make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Sunday Morning Worship Services: 9:00 AM Contemporary along with Sunday School for all children through 12th grade, 11:00 AM Traditional Service
We believe that the human heart was created to worship God. In relationship with God through Jesus Christ we find fulfilment and purpose. Our worship services are designed to guide us into a sense of God’s presence and to encourage us to give ourselves more completely to God in love, service and fellowship.
Sunday School for children and youth is offered during our 9 am worship service. Children start in the sanctuary and are dismissed part-way through the service to their classes.
Online services are available on Facebook and YouTube. They are posted by about noon on Sundays.
Contemporary Worship - 9 am
