Worship on Sundays
Worship with us at Calvary every Sunday at 10.00am. You can join us for worship in person or via our online services.
At Thomastown, we worship on the fourth Sunday of the month at 2.30pm when COVID restrictions allow.
Music for Christ
Music underpins worship at Calvary in a fundamental way and covers a range of styles from traditional to more contemporary. We have always been a singing church, and that hasn't changed from the time the Lutheran Church arrived on Australian soil. We encourage as many musicians to support our worship services as we can, and anyone with any level of skill or age is welcome to participate and contribute. We have had a variety of instruments over the years, from organ and piano to mandolins and guitars, drums, flutes and the odd bush leaf (not really). To enhance worship, we encourage singers, usually a small group of conscripted volunteers, or anyone who is willing and can hold a tune, to help lead and sometimes, for even more fun, harmonise ad-lib. The small group expands to a larger choir group on special occasions, and a regular practice schedule is negotiated. We include as many different types of music as our abilities allow, and the aim is to enjoy the unique rewards of making music together (including increased oxytocin levels) and the opportunities for developing our gifts. Above all, we try to keep in mind that all we do is within the body of Christ and Christians as a whole, and it is foremost the celebration and praise of God who has done marvellous things for us beyond our imagination.
Calvary Kids is all about our precious gift from God – our children.
Calvary Kids is our children’s ministry focus where youngsters are introduced to the story of Jesus and his love for us. Calvary Kids is conducted each week of the school term and is open to pre-schoolers (from age four) up. The leaders work hard to make it a fun and engaging experience, designed to make children feel safe and eager to hear the message of the Bible through storytelling and creative activities. They are fully supervised by accredited congregational instructors who have undertaken and maintain current Safe Church training.
