Children & Youth
The Children & Youth Committee wants to make our congregation, our church a child and youth friendly place, to ensure that children and youth are part of our church and are represented.
They want to create a social environment in which the various age groups can grow up together, with space and time to relate to each other as their faith grows and develops. In creating this space they want to honour children's spirituality, to share the stories of the faith tradition and to use a variety of interpretive tools to assist this process.
The committee seeks to value our young people by engaging them in Christian education that will hopefully nurture their relationship with God in a way that is relevant to their own experience, and also provide opportunities for relationships with adults they would not normally speak with.
The committee provides support to all people engaged in ministry with the children & young people in our congregation. The committee has oversight of:
- The Student House Program with the support of the Student House Management Committee
- Sunday School Program
- Youth Group (YUCY) Program
- Young Adults Program
