VISIT CALVARY BURLINGTON
Coming into a new church for the first time can be unnerving. We want to give you some information about what you can expect, and answer some of the questions you may have.
Every Sunday we start serving coffee and tea at 9:30am. The service begins at 10:00am, and it lasts until approximately 11:20am. Afterwards we have something we call Calvary Connects, a time to have some light refreshments and get to know some of the other people who attend.
If you have young children we suggest arriving by 9:50am so that we can check your children into their classes. As you enter the building you can go directly to our Welcome Centre where one of our friendly team members will get your kids signed into the correct class. From there, children ages newborn up to Sk can go directly downstairs to their classroom. Children in grades 1–8 will remain with you.
When the service begins in the auditorium on the main level, the worship team leads us through a few songs, and then children in grades 1-5 are dismissed to their Sunday School class. Just before the message time students in grades 6–8 go downstairs for a special time of going deeper in God's Word. At the end of the service, head downstairs to pick up your kids, then stick around for some coffee, tea and light refreshments.
To make things as easy as possible, you can fill out the child info sheet ahead of time and bring it with you when you sign your child into their class. Click here to download the form.
Do you have good coffee?
Yes! We have great coffee! Sundays we serve coffee and tea at 9:30am, and again after the service. You can also bring your own coffee into the service with you.
Where can I get more information about the church?
You can look at our statement of faith here, and you can also stop by the Welcome Centre in the foyer to ask questions, grab a church brochure, and pick up a free Calvary water mug.
What can I expect in a Sunday service?
Each week we sing a few songs and then hear a message from the Pastor based out of the Bible. You'll also hear a few announcements that are relevant to the church and community, and we receive an offering.
Do I have to give money when I come to the church?
Great question! We believe that giving happens as an expression of worship and gratitude for all that God has done for us. We hope that you come and find out about all the ways that God is at work in and through our church, and that you choose to support the church as we love God, love people and serve our world.

What kind of music will I hear?
We have a full band that leads us in contemporary worship songs as well as some traditional favourites.
What should I wear?
There is no dress code, so you'll see people wearing casual clothes like jeans and T-shirts, as well as business-casual clothes.
