The ERQ, which became a denomination in 1988, is composed of eight small churches. In 1978 the Presbyterian Church in Canada, the Christian Reformed Church and Presbyterian Church of America decided to cooperate and plan churches together. Since 1988, much of this
support has been removed so these struggling churches need our support to continue worshipping and reaching out in a predominantly Roman Catholic area.
Redemption Prison Ministry (RPM)
Originally known as Cornerstone Bible Institute. This ministry was formed in August of 1996 to reach prisoners across Canada from a Reformed perspective. Rev.

This enables RPM to provide better opportunities to walk alongside those they serve.
