Children in Worship
We learn most by doing and by example. Children of all ages are welcome to remain in service with their parents/caregivers any time they choose. The first Sunday of each month, beginning December 2017,we have Worship all together at 11:00 am. The remaining Sundays, everyone begins in the Sanctuary together at 11 am and our children’s exploration program runs from 11:15 to 12:15 after the Story for All Ages.
Buddy Bags and Mandala sheets are available at the welcome table as you enter the Sanctuary foyer, for all those who engage best when hands are busy. Buddy Bags include a small stuffed animal, soft finger fidget objects, crayons and themed colouring pages. Please return the bag at the end of worship, the colouring book is yours to keep.

Messy Church MAKE Dinner
Messy Church has become a beloved tradition over the past two years and it will be continuing. The first Saturday of each month from 6 pm – 9 pm (cooking and set-up start at 5 pm) we will meet to eat together, play, sing, create, and take-apart together. The child care room is staffed, so parents have an opportunity to relax and connect together while the kids play. Here are the dates.
Adult Religious Education
The congregation offers a variety of programs, some short-term and others ongoing. These are a good opportunity to get to know people outside of Sunday worship services.
If you have an idea for an Adult program, please contact our parish minister,
