Children & Families at Transfiguration
Welcome to the vibrant Children’s Ministry programme at the Church of the Transfiguration! (Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently prevented from offering Children’s Ministry. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes to parents and families. Children are invited to remain with their parents/families during the service.)
Children are an integral part of our community. At Transfiguration, we wish to create an atmosphere that encourages children to become lifelong disciples of Jesus, filled with the light of Christ, walking in His ways, and guided by the power of the Holy Spirit.
At the 10:30am service, children aged 2-7 are invited to gather in the Children’s Ministry Room – a thoughtfully-created, kid-friendly space – where they feel welcomed and encouraged and where our dedicated Early Childhood Educators (Roopdai and Jenn) help them work to develop relationships based on mutual ministering through Bible stories, songs, prayer, and crafts. Older children are invited to participate in the service through roles such as serving or singing with the choir, wherein they gain a sense of accomplishment and responsibility while feeling supported in their faith journey.
For any parent or guardian with little ones who needs a place of quiet for nursing or rest during the service, we have a comfortable chair and a few soft toys at the back of the sanctuary.
Rather than simply teaching the children of our congregation, we believe that they have things to teach us as well, and we work to engage in worship and ministry alongside them. We believe that no one journeys in faith alone and so we also work to encourage and support parents and children on their journey together, both as part of their immediate family and as a part of our larger church family.
Wherever you and your family may be on your journey of faith, we look forward to meeting you and we hope that you will find a nurturing home at Transfiguration.
All are welcome and invited.
