Children’s and Youth Ministries

 

It’s all about growing:  going deeper and wider as children, youth, and their families grow in faith, are anchored in the Word, and develop a lifelong relationship with God and their faith community.

St. Philip’s is a place for families, for children and youth.  Come and experience the warmth and support of the St. Philip’s family as we grow in faith together.  We are going deeper and going wider as we explore and experience, as we grow roots and spread our wings. 

 

Children’s Program:

Sundays at 10:15 am we gather for TruthLab Investigations.  With the dynamic leadership of St. Philip’s adults and youth, kids ages 3-12 gather from September through May.  All kids are welcome to join us Sunday for an hour of fun at the beach as we answer some of the big questions about God and our faith.

Youth:

SPY (St. Philip’s Youth) is fun, faith, and friends and don’t forget a little food to fuel our engines. If we’re not eating it, we’re preparing it for others:  sandwiches for Out of the Cold, pancakes for Shrove Tuesday, or Gingerbread Houses for auction.  To go deeper, SPY develop their own faith and spirituality in a supportive community of peers and adults.  To go wider, we participate in the life, mission, and work of our larger St. Philip’s family and serve out in the city.  And through all this, we discover new friendships, especially when we are away for a weekend on retreat or at a youth gathering with other youth from across Canada.

SPY has leadership opportunities for youth who are interested.  

Family:         

St. Philip’s supports parents in their critical role of faith formation and spiritual development for their children.  We are a place for families.  We host intergenerational events to welcome everyone.
