Welcome to Calvin Presbyterian Church
A place where Jesus Christ is Worshipped, Lived and Shared with others
A Brief View of Calvin Church
Calvin Church is part of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, www.presbycan.ca, a church family of about 750 congregations, with a history spanning almost four centuries of Canada’s story, with roots in the European and Scottish Reformation. Today, the PCC ministers to people of many European, African, Asian, Central and South American origin, as well as to First Nations’ peoples. Calvin Church was, in fact, first established in 1946 as a Hungarian-speaking congregation; it became English-speaking in the 1970’s. Most congregations of the PCC, including Calvin Church, have representatives of Canada’s wide multi-cultural mosaic within their membership.
The affairs of the congregation are guided by the Pastor and Elders (who are elected by the congregation). They set the vision and have oversight of the membership, discipline, worship, Christian education, stewardship and mission of the congregation. They encourage the work of various ministry teams, such as worship, congregational life, pastoral care and mission & outreach, and committees, such as the Facilities and Finance committee, and the New Building committee, all of which carry out the work and witness of the congregation.
You may become a member of the congregation, either by transfer of certificate from another Christian denomination or by making a profession or reaffirmation of faith. A series of inquiry and orientation classes are held annually. We publish a congregational directory for members and adherents (friends and supporters) of the congregation
