Reformed in doctrine and evangelistic in practice, Calgary FPC is a caring family church with a deep love for God's Word.
As a body of believers we treasure the richness of the metrical psalms, hymns, and Scriptural paraphrases in our services as the basis of our congregational worship. Prayer is an integral part of all that we do, as we seek to cultivate a dependance upon God alone, as is a Christ-centred approach to the expository preaching of the Scriptures.
Although we recognize that God's people can be found in many different places, we have no sympathy for the modern ecumenical or charismatic movements. Nor will we officially fellowship with any church which has departed from the fundamental doctrines of the Word of God. Truth matters, and we believe it's important for the benefit of ourselves and future generations to stand for the truth and to cultivate an environment where the purity of the truth is maintained.
If you're in the Calgary area, and you're looking for a place to hear the Word of God, and where you and your children will be cared for and nourished in reformed doctrine and practice, we invite you to join us this Sunday. We would love to get to know you and your family.

I have been delighted with the service of SA long before I became a pastor 18 months ago, and continue to be thankful for how the Lord seems to be using the sermons as a blessing to His church beyond the congregation here in Calgary. Getting emails and messages of encouragement is nice, but we have been greatly blessed recently to welcome a young family to the church who used the Church Finder on SA to find us and begin worshipping with us.
I cannot thank Steven and the team at SA enough for all they do and the burden they have to bring the gospel to the nations, and I trust the Lord will keep their hearts and use this platform for many years to the glory of His name.
