Love Ottawa has a vision to come alongside the Church of Ottawa to bring transformation to the 100 neighborhoods of our city.

This initial study will help us to develop expertise, tested methodology and a format to be shared with other congregations and applied to other neighborhoods and regions of Ottawa in years to come.
