Message from the Minister

Welcome to the virtual home of St. Stephen’s! We are glad you have found us in the vast array of church options in the fair city of Ottawa. We hope to get an opportunity to meet you in person on a Sunday morning or at another event hosted here.

St. Stephen’s is a congregation rich in history. Originating as a Sunday School, we have been here as a worshiping congregation for almost 75 years. Check out this page for more about our history!

We are a family church, with several of our founding families continuing to worship here through the generations. We run a vibrant children’s program during service, have fun and learn Biblical truths with youth once per month on Fridays and have a great adult Sunday School before services at 9:15. We hope that people of all ages encounter the living Jesus here.

We are a community church, welcoming people from many diverse backgrounds on Sunday as well as supporting many different community groups. We hope all people who walk through our doors feel welcome and sense God’s love for them.

While I have only been here since November 2017, my family and I have felt very welcome from the beginning. I hope the same is true for you!
