We welcome the whole church family for worship together in song. We celebrate diversity in our church. We are inclusive and welcoming of all types of family structures.
We have opportunities for families to participate in our community in a variety of ways. Sunday services at 10:30 has a children’s focus at the beginning, followed by separate time to focus on music, crafts, play and activity based on gospel readings. For the parents with very young, we have a quiet play space at the back allows parents with babies and toddlers to still participate in the service while having the space to let children crawl and play. All toys are sanitized weekly. A combined set-up allows children participate in worship with the greater community as well as engaging them in age appropriate activities.
In addition to family-centered activities during the 10:30 service on Sundays, we have opportunities for peer support and community involvement throughout the year such as Family Fun fair, nature hikes, story time and family BBQs.
For the older children, we have a youth group that meets on Thursday evenings, as well as community partnerships available to help with acquiring volunteer hours towards their high school diploma.
Coming soon (June 2017) is MESSY CHURCH
This will be an inter-generational fun and ‘messy’ (read: just as you are) worship that will be happening once monthly on an evening (to be determined). No worries about dinner, it will be provided! Bring your friends and family of all ages to engage in play, crafts and a delicious meal in the church hall. Messy Church is Ecumenical, and was founded in the UK in 2004. It has been so successful there are now over 3500 Messy Churches around the world!
