Children & Families at Transfiguration
Welcome to the vibrant Children’s Ministry programme at the Church of the Transfiguration!
Children are an integral part of our community. Guided by our Pastor to Children and Families and a dedicated and caring team of early childhood educators and volunteers, a joyful and enthusiastic group of children of all ages gather each Sunday, both at 10:30am and at 5pm. A copy of the current child-friendly liturgy we are using, developed by our Pastor to Children and Families, can be found on our Devotional Resources page.
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. To do so, we have thoughtfully created a kid-friendly Children’s Ministry room where school-aged children feel welcomed and encouraged as we work to develop relationships based on mutual ministering. We also have a nursery available during the services in our beautiful chapel right beside the Sanctuary where younger children are cared for and led in bible stories and prayer by members of our Children’s Ministry team.
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.
Grade Five & Up Club
Engaging in conversations of faith outside church is important, too, and there’s no better place for such discussions than over brunch! Once a month, children in grade five and up join Brenda, our Pastor to Children and Families, at a local brunch place to have conversations about faith after Sunday morning service.
