Building Transition Updates
In 2013, the congregation entered into discussion about the possible sale of the Ranchlands facility through an intentional congregational renewal process. In 2016, the Ranchlands building was sold to the Muslim Association of Canada, and the Calgary congregation relocated to Lion's Village at 2528 Bowness Rd. NW as a temporary location.
A Facility Planning Team has been established to help facilitate this transition, and the congregation has entered into an acquisition process as it seeks to relocate to a new space.
This purpose of this page is twofold:
Our new awning has been installed to match those of our neighbours. We are absolutely falling in love with the curb appeal of our new space. In the first image you can see our backlit church seal just inside - so warm and inviting...PEACE.
Can't wait for all the colours of spring to explode in all the nearby trees.
Chairs and tables have been assembled, projector has been installed, TVs have been setup...it is down to the final touches!
Thanks to all our volunteers and consultants for making this happen so quickly!

We have much to be grateful for this week!
Our Pastor Doug Hayden and his two amazing assistants (Don McLeod and Ron Richea) have been busy delivering and assembling our new furniture.
Additionally, we've had a baby changing station installed in both communal washrooms. Progress!
Check out that extra cool delivery truck, and THANK YOU to our volunteers!
The Calgary Congregation’s new facility located at:
422 11 Ave. SE #112
Calgary, AB T2G 0Y4
…has passed city inspection with flying colours!
Having chosen the best in their field, we were not surprised to learn there were no issues of concern for the inspector. We’d like to thank our professional groups for bringing our dream to life:
Also, a special thanks to the Toronto Congregation for supporting us throughout this process by answering our questions, providing guidance and suggestions, and for being our cheerleaders since day one.
Lastly (but certainly not least), we’d like to thank the congregation for its patience, support, and input throughout the process. We are grateful for the commitment and hard work of the Facility Team. Thank you for everything!
There are a few pieces waiting to be delivered (e.g. furniture, drapery, etc.), but we are well on our way! More details to come soon!
We have lots to be grateful for as work continues on the Calgary Congregation's new home downtown. Check out the new millwork, kitchen cabinetry, appliances, and flooring going in! We are just can't believe how fast all of this has taken shape.
We are excited to share the following photos from the project site taken on April 3, 2021. As you can see, our millwork has been installed, along with our cabinets in the kitchen! Incredible to see it all begin to take shape.
It's incredible to see the walls closed in in our new space. Thanks to Pastor Doug Hayden for providing these progress photos. (Photos taken on Saturday, March 20, 2021.)
Photos provided to us today, March 12, showing off some amazing construction progress in our new space. Check out that curved wall and the entryway area!
That round frame on the east wall is going to be the future home of the stain glass that once graced our wall in the Ranchlands facility.
Progress photos taken on March 6, 2021. Electrical wiring is being installed, ceiling work continues, and the curved wall is beginning to take shape.

Things are literally taking shape before our eyes! Stay tuned for more progress photos as things move forward.
