Children@ SJE

Children are a vital part of our worshiping community at St. John’s.

Our goal is to ensure that each child is supported and encouraged to develop the gifts that they have been given by God. We hope that each child will know much they are loved by God and what an incredible gift they are to the Body of Christ.

Children are welcome to stay and participate in worship services. There are books and colouring pages available on the table as you come into the building, please feel free to enjoy these during the service. You will find a quiet room for babies just inside the North entrance of the building.

Children's Ministry staff and volunteers are trained in diocesan safety policies.

All of our volunteers are screened and have completed criminal and vulnerable sector record checks.


If you have questions about anything to do with children's ministry or what we are doing to support families, please contact our Children and Families' Minister, Maryann:

Current Offerings for Children and Families

Saturday Outdoor Worship

Every Saturday from 3-4:30 pm (weather permitting) we hold an Outdoor Worship Service for families on the SJE patio. This service provides a fun way for families to stay connected, offering  crafts, fellowship, prayer, and a time to celebrate God. Please note: we do not gather on the second Saturday of each month. 

Hybrid Sunday School

During our 10am Sunday service, we offer Sunday school both onsite in the Lesser Hall and online via Zoom.  Sunday school takes the form of a children's worship service with fun, music, videos, prayers, and a reflection. Sometimes we have a craft after our service or we play games. 

All children are welcome to attend!!
