McPhail Memorial Baptist Church

McPhail Memorial Baptist Church is a Baptist church in Ottawa, Canada. It is located on Bronson Avenue at Lisgar Street in the west of Downtown. The church was founded in 1888 as an offshoot of First Baptist Church. Its current home was completed in 1893. It is one of Ottawa's best known examples of late-nineteenth century revivalist architecture. The church is named after Rev. Daniel McPhail who served as a minister and itinerant preacher in the Ottawa area for many decades. He died in 1874.

The church is one of only three churches of the Baptist Convention of ON & QC located in downtown Ottawa. It continues to thrive while many other mainline Protestant churches are merging or closing. The congregation worships each Sunday morning at 10:30 am. The former manse is part of Cornerstone Ministries - it provides transitional housing to women in need.
