About our programs for children, youth and families

All ages are welcome in our worship services. There is a children’s play area at the front left of the sanctuary, and a lounge located through the doors at the front left of the church with toys, a washroom, change mat and speakers for anyone requiring a private, quiet space.

Children 18 months to 2 years may be brought to the staffed Toddler Room on the second floor of the Centre for Peace before or during service.

About 15 minutes into the worship service, children are invited to the front where the Children’s Candle is lit. Then, children can leave with our Children’s Staff to be brought to the Centre of Peace for their age-specific programs. Children can be picked up from their program spaces at noon.

Through storytelling, singing, art creations, and play, children and youth learn and explore sacred stories, practice rituals and traditions, and are centered in the presence of Spirit. Fun and fabulous programs encourage children to ask questions and dance in their unique essence as they develop a sense of belonging in this intergenerational community.

We look forward to seeing you!
