Welcome to another fun filled year of faith exploration through our children and youth program (ages pre-K to Grade 8) that is offered during each Sunday service. After the children’s conversation during the first part of our worship the children move to their own space to explore the sacred stories and the teachings of Jesus. The children are divided up into smaller groups by age and we use art, activity, and games to link our faith to finding our way through everyday life.
Children under the age of 5 come to play, explore, socialize, learn, laugh and develop. Parents, grandparents, and caregivers interact with their kids in a new setting with lots of toys and lots of room to run and play. This is also an opportunity to connect with other caregivers. There is a short circle time followed by snack. Coffee/tea is also provided for the adults. There is no fee or charge for refreshments. Pass the word along to your friends and neighbours with little ones!
In partnership with Saanich Neighbourhood Place our Parents/Caregivers and Tots Drop In Playgroup will run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 til 11:00. IT WILL BE STARTING MID NOVEMBER IN THE NEW BUILDING in the HUB or lower hall of the building. Monday’s drop in will also add a Mother Goose component (an early childhood literacy development program)
Elementary school aged children 5-10yrs are invited to participate in our Kids’ Community Choir. This is a free choir for children to come as they are and to experience a musical space where we will have fun, connect, sing, move, and play. Choir time will be 45 minutes with snack and hangout time built in before and afterwards. There will be an opportunity for the choir to share their music with the greater Broad View United faith community during a Sunday service.
