Life Groups

Life groups are the very best context for all sorts of things.  They are where you can find support and love as you learn, grow & serve together.  We strongly recommend belonging to a life group.  God designed us to enjoy community and it is so often there that we find God.  Please feel free to contact any of the LifeGroups listed or contact us and we will put you in touch with a group. 

Prayer Groups

We encourage everyone to communicate with God through prayer.

Healthy, vibrant relationships require open communication, and prayer is the language of communicating with God.  He invites us to speak to him just as one would talk with a loving parent, bringing him our joys as well as our needs.

Prayer ministry is available to everyone during Sunday morning services and within LifeGroups.  You're welcome to join the Tuesday morning prayer group, 6.30am in the Calvin lounge, and to confidentially place your prayer needs on the Calvin Prayer Chain - please phone Helen Clement 208 4564.

Support and Recovery

Don't go it alone.  We want to offer support, encouragement and practical help for those going through a rough patch.  To see what we can help you with, click here.


Our ministries rely upon the shared contributions of individual's who will volunteer their time to serve - people just like you! 

God created each of us with a unique blend of talents, interests, and spiritual gifts for the purpose of playing a role in helping reconcile our broken world back to Him.  When we use these God-given gifts by volunteering, we make a lasting difference in the lives of others - and in our own lives as well.  Christian service is more than just volunteering.  Serving others models Christ’s humility and shows His love to others.

Finding the right place to serve -

Whether you have lots of time to offer, or ony a little bit, you can make a difference by starting with the interest areas that make your heart beat fast.  Select from this list.


It's always great to spend time together socially and to strengthen friendships.  There are opportunities to do this at Calvin - even better, bring your friends.  Keep an eye on the "What's Up" tab.
