Calvary Pentecostal Church

Peterborough, Ontario


When the prominent Johnson & Johnson manufacturing facility with its 25 acre site became available Calvary Church quickly seized the opportunity and acquired it. The 97,000 ft2 building already had an Administration Wing, 200 seat Assembly Room, fully outfitted Cafeteria, training facilities and an extensive manufacturing facility. The challenge was how to create a functional church within this expanse of space. The solution was to refurbish the existing spaces that could be easily converted into usable areas for the church such as the Administration Wing, Assembly Room into a unique Chapel, Cafeteria, training facilities  into Christian Education and to create within the extensive manufacturing area a Youth Centre/Gymnasium, Nursery, Lobby and a 1000 seat auditorium. The existing roof structure over the new auditorium had to be raised and a new Lobby to provide access to the new Sanctuary was added across the back of the facility. This new Lobby provides expansive views to the east  as the property is located high on a ridge. Twelve of the 25 acre site was set aside for the development of the 100+ unit Westview Village located down the slope of the ridge below the church.
