Welcome!

 

Thanks for stopping by our website! We're glad that you are checking us out. 

 

We are not a perfect church, and we don't pretend to be! But we hope that everyone who comes through our doors will feel love and acceptance from the people here.  As a church family, we love the Bible, believing that it is God's Word for us today. We love Jesus Christ, believing that He is the One who makes it possible for us to experience life to the fullest. And we love each other, believing that the church is a place where true and meaningful community happens, not just on a Sunday morning, but throughout the week, in homes, in neighbourhoods, in coffee shops...really, wherever life happens!

 

Whether you are brand new and checking faith out, interested in finding a church home, whether you are young, old, single, married, we have a number of programs that serve as entry points to help you along the path of your spiritual journey. It would be our pleasure to get you further connected, so please be sure to say hello, and let us know how we can serve you.

If you would like to get more information and find out more about who we are, please fill out the contact form on this page, and someone will follow up with you as quickly as possible. We hope to see you soon!

About the Property

Our church property was once covered by a mature white pine forest. It was farmed by the Reid family who emigrated from Ireland. A farmhouse and barn stood way back from the road in the middle of the property but by the 1950's, both house and barn were gone. Still remaining are several old stone walls or fences, made by piling up stones removed from the fields. 

In the years before 1998 a system of walking trails was developed on the property, but the Ice Storm damaged many of the cedar trees that later fell onto the trails and onto the beautiful old stone wall that runs north-south about one-third of the way back to the high ground. We re-routed some trails and cleaned up others, but never had the time to also clean all of the debris from the wall. The trails were used by youth groups, day camps and individual members in the following years, but have gradually fallen into disuse, likened to Proverbs 24:31 “… thorns had come up everywhere, the ground was covered with weeds, and the stone wall was in ruins.”

 

This fall a number of families came together under the leadership of David Gray,  a member our Property Committee, to restore the wall and the trail that runs beside it to give everyone in our church family a place to walk, snowshoe and ski, and enjoy the natural world in all seasons.  While every effort has been made to provide a safe environment, users of the trails do so at their own risk.   

Our Mission

Trinity Bible Church of Ottawa exists to introduce people to Jesus Christ, develop them to mature in Him and equip them to serve Him, in order that they will enhance God’s reputation in the world. 

Our Vision

Trinity Bible Church of Ottawa will love the people of Osgoode, the surrounding communities and the rest of the world just like Jesus does.
