The Moravian Church in Canada, part of the Moravian Church Northern Province serves the Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta areas, and includes seven congregations with one emerging ministry.

Of us,  you could say that we have a heartbeat for God and a passion for people. We believe in basic religious principles, and we think everyone matters regardless of their background, their race, their culture.  Truthfully, that’s how God wanted it in the first place!

We welcome you to visit one of our congregations and discover what we can offer you on your journey of faith.
