Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus gripped by the gospel, living for God’s glory. Our vision is to build a prayerful Bible-teaching evangelical church in the heart of the city with a heart for the city and the world.

We are an evangelical Anglican church, a member of the Anglican Network in Canada and part of the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans.

We seek to be a biblically-faithful and orthodox church within the Anglican Way of following Jesus.

We have a great heart for student ministry, and our proximity to the University of Ottawa challenges us to get out and build witnessing relationships with students! We are active at the University of Ottawa.

We have a passion for world missions. We are happy to support long-term missionaries in Central Asia, Central America, Africa and Canada.

We have a heart for local compassion ministries.  We work with Jericho Road to feed the disadvantaged.  We donate money and non-perishable food items to St. Joe’s Supper Table.

We have a heart for ministries that combine compassion and evangelism.  Kwagala Ministries in Jinja, Uganda is our ministry to boys living on the streets.  Many boys are helped, many hear the gospel and some now live in the Kwagala home.

We love working with other Christians.  We work with other gospel-minded churches in campus evangelism, apologetics and The Big Give.

We have a healthy representation of all ages and life demographics, including children, families, students, singles, seniors and everyone in between.

Same Church, New Name

In 1865 a church named St. Alban’s was started. 143 years later we joined an exciting new denomination known as the Anglican Network in Canada. The mission of this new group is to build biblically faithful, gospel sharing Anglican Churches. We are united with similar groups all around the world through the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans. In 2011, we changed our name to Church of the Messiah. We welcome all Christians, regardless of denomination, who are seeking a church home. We also welcome seekers and skeptics. Honest questions are always welcome! We hope you will join us.
