Families come in many forms these days and your family is welcome here. During our the school year we offer programs for children and teens of all ages.
On Sunday mornings, at our 9:30am service, we gather on the lower level as a group for a period of welcome, then divide into to age-based groups. Please come down with your child to the parish hall, get to meet some of our leaders, and sign your child into the morning program. Children will re-join their parents towards the end of the service, in time for communion.
Alternatively, children are always welcome to stay with their family in church. We even offer an activity table at the back of the church. And occasionally, we offer an integrated, child-friendly and intergenertaional 9:30am service. On these occasions, only nursery programming is offered.
Our safe ministry protocol ensures that all our leaders have training in their ministry area and have completed a background check. If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us using the form below and someone will get back to you.
A warm, nurturing environment awaits the youngest members of our community. Infants and toddlers are welcomed by an ECE-trained caregiver. Through play, song, and activities, young ones are cared for and engaged while their families attend church. Our nursery is open from 9:00am – 1pm. Some parents choose to sign out their child in time to receive communion.
Kids @ Redeemer
(JK through Grade 6, 9:30am service)
Our Kids @ Redeemer program runs during the 9:30am Sunday service throughout the school year. After a time of gathering and welcome, they head off to age-appropriate small group programming that seeks to explore sacred story and faith in an open and engaging way. Kids in this age group follow the SPARK curriculum and join their family in time for communion. We also have some additional, special programs for kids throughout the year.
Youth @ Redeemer
(Grade 7 through High School, 9:30am service)
Our junior and senior youth groups explore questions of faith together on Sunday mornings in a respectful and open-minded environment. Our youth participate in social justice initiatives and help to lead special services. Youth have an opportunity to participate in an annual service-learning trip, as well as diocesan youth events such as retreats. Recent trips included an exchange trip with the Yukon, and service-learning trips to Peterborough, Ottawa, and Montreal.
