Together, we celebrate the opportunity and the privilege to exist as a community that reflects the beauty of God’s creation. We are one of the most diverse Churches in the country as our Sunday worship reflects in our language, music, prayers and preaching. We strive to make everyone to feel welcome by constantly doing things that remind us all that all are part of the community irrespective of the ratio.
We offer opportunities for Spiritual Growth through Christian Education programmes like the Alpha Course, Disciple Bible Study, Companions in Christ Series, Marriage Preparation, Parenting seminars, and Confirmation Program for the Youth. Our philosophy is that we all need to grow in our faith together and so Fellowship Groups (Cell Groups) are an integral part of who we are. We also express our faith and vision by serving others. We have various ministries for each member of the community to express their faith and deepen their love for Christ and God’s world.
We serve in the surrounding schools, prisons, hospitals, and retirement villages. We join hands with the Corporate sector by encouraging them to serve with us. Currently, we work with the University of Witwatersrand’s medical students to make a difference in the local clinic and, together with NatGeomatics we have blessed 300 residents of Avril Elizabeth Home in Germiston for the past two years by buying linen for the residents to the sum of R60 000.00. We are currently raising funds to help the community of Zebediela in Limpopo to put a roof on their Church.
Our volunteers are also working tirelessly to with the Connexional office of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa to start a primary school in Ivory Park by 2015.
Our guiding vision is to reach out and share God’s Embracing Love by extending our fellowship beyond the community. To this end, every cent that comes in is tithed to make a difference around the Midrand community, the country, and even beyond the borders of South Africa. We believe that God is blessing us so that we can be a blessing to others.
Resources are therefore a big need in order for us to continue doing our work faithfully. Over and above the Sunday giving we encourage all those who worship at Calvary to tithe generously so that we can continue to do God’s work. Should you be in a position to assist, do not hesitate to contact our office on +27 11 805 3375 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All are welcome at Calvary.
All people can belong at Calvary.
All can make a difference in the world.
