Welcome to Waterloo CRC

In compliance with the latest public health policies and guidelines, our Sunday services are currently offered for in-person worship at 30% capacity.

Giving to Waterloo CRC during the pandemic

Through these difficult and unsure times, the expenses at the church remain fairly constant. Our rental income has dried up, and our collective giving is understandably down as families deal with their reality. The Counting Committee continues to meet every week, and your contribution envelopes can be dropped off in the church mailbox, or you can mail your contribution to the church. We offer an option to set up automatic withdrawals from your bank account; if you wish to enroll in this program, contact Diane Van Dalen.

Worship Services

Services & Sermons

We gather for worship services every Sunday at 10:30 am. We serve coffee and tea afterwards.

We offer nursery care for infants and toddlers during the service.

University Students

We are close to both the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University!

If you're looking for community, Sunday worship, Christian university friends, or if you just want a free lunch (the first Sunday of each month after the morning service!)... we warmly invite you to check us out!

Sunday School

Children aged 3 through Grade 3 gather halfway through each service for singing, crafts, and stories.

From October-May, students from Grades 4-8 meet prior to the service, from 9:30-10:15. Look for signs on the classroom doors for the grade you need.

Finding us or contacting us

We are located at 209 Bearinger Road (on the south-west corner of Parkside & Bearinger) in Waterloo, Ontario. The church is adjacent to the north edge of the University of Waterloo campus, and close by to Wilfrid Laurier University.
