Ottawa, ONT

Background
Starting in 1976, a couple of saints began meeting together in their homes. Throughout the years, many saints were added to the church for the Lord’s testimony in Ottawa, some of them coming from other cities while others received the Lord locally in Ottawa. On September 25, 1994, the Lord’s Table was established in Ottawa.

Currently there are around 50 saints meeting regularly on the Lord’s Day. There are three community based Chinese-speaking home groups (Barrhaven group, Downtown group, Kanata group), one English-speaking community group and two college-student and young working-saints groups, one in Chinese and one in English. The prayer meeting attendance is around 15 saints.
