SEE YOU AT 11:07!
THE WORSHIP PALETTE
Join us on Sunday mornings at 11:07am for the Worship Palette. This is what you might otherwise know as Sunday service. Anyone is welcome, young and old; whether you’re a church veteran, completely new to this Jesus thing or are even sceptical about faith and what it could mean for you. You’ll be accepted as you are. This is a place where you can ask questions, simply listen, write poetry, draw in the sketch book (throughout the service) or join in the music with a tambourine or percussive drum. Above all, we hope that this is a place where you can grow and find some answers to your questions. We’d love to have you and we hope to see you.
What Should I Wear?
Whatever makes you comfortable. We are pretty laid back and informal, so you might feel out of place if your wear a suit and tie, but we won’t judge you. In the winter we ask people to remove outside footwear so if there’s snow or such on the ground you might want to bring a pair of slippers or wear clean socks.
KIDS AT ECCLESIAX
Families include kids and church should be a family, so church includes kids! Children of all ages are welcome to join us in the service – sharing in the music, art, conversation, & communion. Sometimes it can be distracting and hard to compete with a cute toddler, but our children are priceless and always add to our experience. For parents who want a place to care for their little ones outside of the service we have a well equipped nursery right next door to where we meet.
MEET OUR PASTOR
Our pastor is Reverend Cameron Montgomery, but we just call him Cam. A graduate of Sheridan College’s Classical Animation program, he spent 25 years as a graphic designer in Oakville and Thunder Bay, Ontario, where he lived with his wife and two sons. In 2007 Cam’s wife of 25 years died of cancer and he felt God calling him into full-time Christian ministry. In 2008 he came to Ottawa to help a friend and to pursue further education at Saint Paul’s University. Cam has served at ecclesiaX since 2009, was ordained in the Free Methodist Church in 2014, and completed a Bachelor of Arts in 2016. In 2010 Cam married his lovely wife Kim who has a daughter and two sons.
Kim works as a Chaplain at a local nursing home. She and Cam are also raising their young granddaughter. They both have heart for people and feel called to help create a place where people can have honest conversations about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in the twenty first century.
WEEKLY GET TOGETHERS
There are no Bible studies or small groups happening at the moment but we will update this page when that changes. If you are interested in a midweek Bible study or discussion group please feel free to contact us!
We have a Board Game Night for fun and fellowship the first three Thursdays of every month. It starts at 7:30 pm and you are welcome to bring your own games or enjoy someone else’s.
We’re at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Monk Street, one small block west of Bank Street. Look for the big blue doors with our name on them. Use the Monk Street entrance for Sunday service and the Office.

Have A Question?
Churches come in many ‘shapes and sizes’ and we are a little unique, so it’s ok if you have more questions. Please feel free to use this form to ask about anything we didn’t cover, or that you may need more details about. We love hard questions, so don’t be afraid to ask anything you may be wondering about.
