Kids & Youth @ Redeemer Church the whole family can get exited about!
Families come in many forms; your family is welcome here. During the school year we offer programs for children and teens of all ages on Sundays and during special events.
Where does my child go on Sundays?
On Sunday mornings, we gather for in-person worship at 10:30am. Kids @ Redeemer meets during this service, leaving right before the readings and returning for eucharist. Youth @ Redeemer has its own schedule, alternating weeks in worship and in Youth Group.
Children are always welcome at the 10:30 service. There’s room for restless bodies to roam and an activity table, and we don’t mind a fussy baby.
Occasionally, we offer an integrated, child-friendly and intergenerational service. On these occasions, children of all ages participate with their families.
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.

At this time, we do not have a nursery program for our youngest members.
It bears repeating: we don’t mind a fussy baby. Caregivers are welcome to walk about, even step outside for a while. Don’t be surprised if an experienced older parent or grandparent offers to hold your little one. We love babies!
Kids @ Redeemer (JK through Grade 6)
Our Kids @ Redeemer program runs throughout the school year. After a time of gathering and welcome, they head downstairs 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)
Our youth group explores questions of faith together on Sunday mornings in a respectful and open-minded environment. Every other week our youth group gathers during the 10:30am service for a chance to connect, learn, discuss, and create. The other weeks we participate in worship, and have a basket of resources to help us connect to worship in creative ways. From time to time, we participate in social justice initiatives and help to lead special services. Redeemer youth have had opportunities to participate in service-learning trips to Peterborough, Ottawa and Montreal. They have attended diocesan youth retreats and other events and participated in an exchange with the Yukon.
We have special youth events and programs throughout the year.
