As followers of Christ, we are all called to be His ambassadors to a world in need of a Saviour. As a part of the local church in Ottawa, we have the opportunity to be Jesus’ hands and feet to our community in the Nation’s Capital. City Outreach is a key part of what we do at The Met. It is our heartbeat and our deep desire to love Ottawa intentionally with the love of Christ.
I want to serve
The Met helps provide backpacks for needy children and winter clothing for children and adults without adequate means, remembering that Jesus said that we do for the least of these we do for Him.
Bridges strives to provide a healthy meal, an accessible church service with worship and an inspirational message, friendship, and other support to disadvantaged people living in the downtown core. Bridges meets on Tuesday nights at 6:00pm from September to June at The Bronson Centre.
MALTA and The Met partner together to bring the love of Christ to those with exceptional needs living in group homes. Many have come to faith and had their lives transformed through a Bible study held for them in our Fireside Room, and through special events like our summer BBQ celebration.
The Met expresses love and concern for the elderly living in seniors' residences. Some folks living there follow Christ, but can no longer get out to church. Others used to go to church and are open to the message of Jesus. The Met brings monthly worship services to four seniors' residences, and Bible studies to several others.
