Calvin worships, along with the Deer Park United Congregation, weekly at 10:30am on Sundays. We are blessed with a fantastic choir, including 6 section leads and a large number of volunteer members, offering an eclectic selection of worship music throughout the year.
Calvin/Deer Park is in the midst of opening a new worship centre for children in September 2013. We are beginning a Young Children and Worship Program, based on the work of Sonja Stewart and Jerome Berryman. We have 4 trained storyteller/leaders for this program and look forward to welcoming children on Sundays in the Fall. The program is designed for children 2-10.
Calvin is also a member of the Churches-on-the-Hill Ministerial, an historical ecumenical association of the churches in the Yonge & St. Clair area. The churches jointly sponsor several events such as the annual canned food drive, World Day of Prayer and the Good Friday walk.
We have an active outreach committee. We provide a free Community Breakfast for anyone who wants a hot meal. The breakfast is served once a month on the Second Saturday of the month 8:00am – 9:45am.
We are involved in Boarding Homes Ministry, Evangel Hall.
We have a community coordinator, Sue Thomson, who works throughout the year to plan and host community events. we also have an active Pastoral Care Team and offer Christian education opportunities for adults throughout the year.
