Centre for the City

Hope. For the City.

Are you ready for what God is doing? This is an invitation for all of us to be for the city.

Join the movement. 

Think of everything God can do for the city… through you, through me, through our Centre Street Church family and through our network of partners. All of us linked to make a deeper impact for God’s kingdom. 

The Centre for the City provides:

  • A place of welcoming and belonging to build community and friendships
  • Access to clothing and food support
  • Classes for new Canadians and refugees
  • Job training, interview help and resume support
  • An introduction to the gospel message
  • Opportunities for life change
  • Prayer support
  • Connection to supportive services provided by CSC or community partners
  • And more…

Monday Night Evangelism (MNE)

We meet to worship, pray, then hit the streets with the best news on the planet, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is an exciting ministry where the power of God continues to impact lives, just like in the book of Acts.

Currently, we meet every Monday night at Centre Street Church’s Bridgeland Campus at 6:30pm. There we prepare for the night in worship, prayer, and training before we head out to the streets.

MNE is for the church of Calgary. We currently have people from 25 different churches joining us. We truly are the body of Christ and love our brothers and sisters in Christ from all biblically rooted denominations!

  • One-to-one conversations,
  • Praying for people,
  • Open-air preaching,
  • Tract distribution,
  • Worship/singing,
  • Serving food,
  • Backing the ministry in prayer, and more.
