Calvin Presbyterian Church is a Presbyterian Church in Canada congregation located at 26 Delisle Street in the Yonge Street and St. Clair Avenue area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The congregation began as a "Minority Group" from nearby Deer Park Presbyterian Church that voted against joining the United Church of Canada in 1925. First known as "Hill District Presbyterians", they later named their congregation after Reformation leader John Calvin.

Calvin is part of Churches on the Hill, an ecumenical grouping of congregations, including Deer Park, that meet regularly for study, fellowship, and local pursuits.

Senior Ministers:

  • Rev. Dr. Joseph Wasson, 1925 - 1954.
  • Rev. Dr. Douglas Herron, 1955 - 1980s.
  • Rev. Dr. Kenrick Borden, 1980s - 2000.
  • Rev. Ian A.R. McDonald, February 3, 2002 –

Music facility[edit]

Musicians and recording engineers value the unique reverberation pattern of the Calvin Presbyterian sanctuary, with its similarity to the Sofiensaal in Vienna.
