Our History

What is now Ritson Road Alliance Church began as a tent meeting on the corner of Wilson Rd. and Athol St., back in June of 1954. The tent was fine for the summer, but that fall they began holding their morning services in a schoolhouse on Thornton Rd. and their evening services at the Masonic Temple on Centre St. 

As the church grew, they eventually purchased their own building on Bond St. in 1957. This building was eventually put up for sale with plans of building a new facility at it's current location on the corner of Ritson Rd. N. and Oshawa Blvd. The Bond St. building was sold in 1970 and the church met at Hillsdale Public School while the new facility was being built. This was completed in January of 1971, and Ritson Road Alliance Church has been here ever since.
