Membership (Application)

Membership

The John Calvin Schools have been established by the Free Reformed School Association (FRSA), which is an Association made up of members of the Free Reformed Churches of Australia.

Our Membership base is made up of those with and without children at school; those married, single, widowed, elderly as well as the youth.  Within our church community we see it as our individual responsibility to assist with nurturing the children of the church.  We see the importance of teaching the next generation to know their covenant God!  For this reason we count it a joy and a privilege to be part of this wonderful work in providing life-long financial support to the FRSA in order that it has the means to provide a Reformed Christian Education to these young children.

By Constitution all Members of the FRSA are required to be a member of one of the Free Reformed Churches, which in turn means that all FRSA supporters subscribe to the Reformed Confessions of the Church.  As a result, all our members support the Christian Worldview taught at school in a way that aligns with what the children are taught at home and in the church.  This close-knit home-church-school relationship provides the children with a solid Reformed Christian basis for their growth and development.

If you are a member of the Free Reformed Church (or are currently in the process of becoming a Member of the Free Reformed Church) and would like to apply for Membership of the FRSA, please complete the Membership Application Form below.
