We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Calvary Baptist Church a great one!
You might be wondering, what's it really like at Calvary Baptist Church? Simply stated, at Calvary, we're all about Jesus. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. And we don't care how you're dressed or what candidate you voted for. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable.
Want to know the best part? No matter what you've been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you'll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone. If you drop by the Welcome Centre, we have a small gift for all our first time visitors. We look forward to meeting you!
Calvary has two Sunday services at 9AM and 11AM to accommodate whatever kind of morning-person you are. During the summer months (Sunday, June 23rd to Sunday, September 1st), we have one service at 10AM.
In total, a Calvary service is about 90 minutes in length. Services begin with the Calvary band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
Our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable during your visit here. Sunday's at Calvary are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Dress how you want and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
We have ample amount of parking. We have an awesome parking team that will direct you where you will need to go! We suggest that you arrive 20 minutes prior to the service as this will allow you to park and check your children in.
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Calvary, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children's safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Kids program the first time that you visit. All ministry workers go through background checks and receive training. Kids programs are offered at both services for kids ages infant through Grade 6. We have programs for youth from Grades 7-12 as well.
Calvary Baptist Church has two locations. Both are located at the corner of Ritson Road and Rossland Road, lovingly referred to as 300 and 301. Our main building is at 300 Rossland Road East in Oshawa, Ontario. Visit our contact page for more information about office hours and contact information.
