Engaging in service leads to life change. Whether you serve in a ministry at St. Paul’s, in Ottawa, or in the world, God calls us to serve one another.
Serve St. Pauls
Your involvement serving at St. Paul’s Church matters because your service really makes a difference. The opportunities listed below describe many of the service opportunities where we need you help. Please look around and then contact the leader for the ministry you would like to serve.
Musical Worship Team
If you are a member of St. Paul’s, gifted musically, and more importantly, if you have a desire to use your gifts for God’s glory, then we would love to have you join our contemporary worship team or traditional choir.
Epicentre Student Ministry
ESM exists to see generations of young people, motivated by God’s extravagant love, become true followers of Christ who are characterized by their love for each other, their communities and their world (James 1:27; John 13:34, 35; Matthew 5:14-16).
Almost every Sunday is someone's first Sunday at St. Paul’s. Imagine joining a team that has fun creating a welcoming environment for our visitors. The Welcome team works hard to create an environment where each person feels welcome and comfortable. You can expect to have fun, care for new people, share community with your team, and play a significant role in helping someone have a wonderful experience.
St. Paul's Kids
SPK exists to introduce children to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them to live their whole lives in response. We do so by walking with them through their spiritual development--building Christ-centered relationships, teaching a Bible-centered curriculum, and participating in missional activities.

Pinecrest Terrace Food Bank
St. Paul's is one of several churches that support Pinecrest Terrace Food Bank.
Everyday we see how hunger affects men, women and children and how it can become a barrier to success. People who come to us have families and jobs to keep with bills to pay. Life is challenging enough. Imagine facing it on an empty stomach.
Our mission is simple: Help people get beyond hunger. Pincrest Terrace is open Monday 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m., Wednesday 1:00p.m., to 3:00p.m., and Friday 9:30a.m. to 11:30a.m.
You can help by making food or monetary donations to the Food Bank.
St. Paul’s cares about the needs of people all over the world. We partner with a number of mission’s organizations and individuals called to overseas work to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the international community. We invite you to join us in supporting them in the work they are doing around the world. We are a church that wants to send people from our community, to serve overseas. If this interests you please contact us.
St. Paul's Mission
We care about being the kind of church that doesn't exist solely for our local community, but for the world. Our desire is to see both the physical and spiritual needs met of people all over the globe. If you desire to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus by serving our international community either from home or internationally, we would love to help support and send you.

Syrian Family Sponsorship
Leader Gord Richardson
In Luke 10:29, Jesus responds to a question in which a lawyer tries to restrict God’s commandment to love our neighbour by narrowly defining who our neighbour is. Jesus responds with the parable of the Good Samaritan - a traveller who shows compassion and mercy to a complete stranger during his time of need. Through this parable, God is calling us to love to everyone - regardless of race, culture or ethnic background - who needs our help.
The plight of Syrian refugees is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today, it affects more than 12 million people - more than those affected by Hurricane Katrina, the Haiti earthquake, and the Indian Ocean tsunami combined. In the context of this catastrophe, St Paul’s has sponsored a Syrian family in collaboration with Presbyterian World Service and Development.
