About the Church

Calvary Baptist Church is currently a congregation of about 50 people.  A tight-knit and very close group, representative of the community as a whole, we thrive on the intimacy and camaraderie that such a small congregation provides.  We meet on Sunday mornings for services and also run prayer meetings Wednesday nights.  We have come through the pandemic and are looking to re-implement and grow programs and activities that were lost or delayed due to public health measures.
