A collective of twenty-two churches in downtown Ottawa

The Centretown Churches Social Action Committee (CCSAC) is a collective of twenty-two churches in downtown Ottawa. CCSAC was started in 1967 by nine churches to respond to social needs in the Centretown area. CCSAC has undertaken many initiatives on behalf of people who are socially and economically disadvantaged in our community. Since 1978, CCSAC’s main project has been oversight of the Centretown Emergency Food Centre (CEFC). CCSAC’s mandate also includes advocacy for social justice, especially for issues relating to poverty.

Our Mission: To unite Christians of all denominations through joint participation in social projects and prayer.

Good job, Knox Presbyterian Church Ottawa.

Belong Ottawa is currently accepting donations for summer supplies to help our participants manage the heat this season. Later this month, we are hosting our annual Summer Picnic, and items such as towels and bathing suits, will ensure everyone can participate comfortably. ☀

If you have any of these items to spare, please consider donating them by visiting us at 154 Somerset St W from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday.

We believe everyone deserves to be safe and have fun in the summer! Thank you for your support! 💛
