First Christian Reformed Church

Chatham, Ontario

Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to take some time to explore and get to know our family here at First Church.
Here at First Church we are more that just a group of believers who come together for worship. We are a family, bound together in Jesus Christ.
We invite you to participate in our ministries and programs, all of which strive to bring us together in true fellowship, strengthen our faith, further the Kingdom, and give glory to God.

We call ourself:

Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be his followers.
We recognize as fellow-Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Apostle’s Creed.
Reformed because we're part of that historic branch of the Christian church that follows the teachings of 16th-century reformer John Calvin, who struggled to return Christianity to its biblical roots.
Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of his people in the world.
We often call ourselves "the First CRC of Chatham" for short.



“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. “ Hmmm… familiar words that we usually hear around Christmas time. As we bathe in the summer sunshine may these wonderful words wash over us anew as we are reminded of the great gift of Jesus into our world. After being refreshed, may we encourage each other and proclaim to the world the marvelous gift of God, and the gift of Grace that is for all who put their faith and trust in Jesus.
