Welcome to Kensington Presbyterian Church!
We are a Christian community worshipping in the heart of NDG — since 1896! The community of NDG has changed a great deal since then, and so have we.
Our worship is open and joyful, both contemporary and traditional. In mission we support the Depot (local focus) and help fight the effects of COVID (international focus). The kids of Kensington are important to our community, since they have their own vitality and gifts to brings to the church.
You are welcome!
Sunday Worship at 10:30 a.m.
Anniversaries are times when we remember where we’ve come from, how that’s shaped us, and how it is guiding us into the future. Our big anniversary is coming. It’s bigger than a Kensington birthday. This is the anniversary of the death and resurrection of Jesus – Easter.
At Easter we remember how Jesus came to show us God’s love, hope & healing. Jesus crossed all sorts of barriers to follow God’s plan and carry out his mission. While that sounds nice, it led to his suffering and death. He knew this would happen, and he still worked to make everything better. In the end, he showed that nothing can stop God – not even death. Jesus came back and formed a community to continue the work.
Christmas is coming.
Are you not sure what to get someone?
Consider donating to a good cause on their behalf. The Presbyterian Church in Canada is helping people in many ways. You can chose one (or more) that will be meaningful to the person you’re looking for (called a tribute gift) – and they can get a card or email sent to them in recognition.
(we are also accepting food donations for the St. Monica’s Food Pantry, and the Head & Hands items for young mothers – the box is near the front entrance.)
Kensington in The Presbyterian Record
This article appeared in the May 2014 issue of The Presbyterian Record – written by Roland De Vries about changes at Kensington Church over the past number of years. (To the right is the front cover of The Presbyterian Record from June 1964 – 50 years ago.)
Change has been in the air at Kensington, Montreal, over the past six years as the congregation has adopted global and contemporary songs in Sunday worship. While we still sing many traditional hymns, there are new melodies, harmonies and rhythms rising into the air from sounding board, vocal cords and even the djembe.
Change has also been in the walls and in the ground and in the pews and in the programs and in the financial outlook. So here’s just a sampling of changes made in our congregation’s life over these past years, beyond the embrace of new musical expressions. Changes made in a spirit, I would say, of faithful common sense. Read More
