About Us

East Indian Christian Fellowship in Calgary originated in the year 2003 with a Saturday evening prayer meeting with two families. The Lord placed a great burden in our heart to share the gospel to the ethnically diverse community in Calgary. Following many days of fasting and praying, the East Indian Christian Fellowship was launched. Our other activities include personal evangelism; individual and family counseling; Pastoral Care and hospital visitation.
