The Bazaar at the Church of St Bartholomew has a long tradition. In 1878 Lady Dufferin, the wife of the Governor General of Canada, held a Bazaar in the Tent Room of Rideau Hall for “our little Church” which collected $2,000. At our last bazaar (November 2016), thanks to more than 100 volunteers from our congregation, well over $15,000.00 was raised for the work of our Church which includes the lunch programme at the Cornerstone Women’s Shelter, the Bale for the North and the Ministry to the Garry J. Armstrong Centre.
Our Bazaar has become an established tradition in the wider community. People come from all corners of Ottawa to purchase Books, Gifts, Attic Treasures, Home Baking, Jams & Jellies, Toys, Knitting, Christmas Decorations, Jewellery and then pause for refreshment at our superb Tea Room.
In 2016 we were honoured to welcomed our mayor, Jim Watson as well as our local councellor, Mr. Tobi Nussbaum, who enjoyed the fine sandwiches in our Tea Room before greeting the public as they entered the Church Hall.
