Children and Youth

St. Margaret’s offers Christian education on Sunday mornings for children ages 0-18, as well as weekly programming for Youth grades 7 - 12, and year-round events and support for families.

If you would like to receive more information on Children & Youth Ministry, please email our Children & Youth Program Coordinator, Rebecca Widdicombe, at rlwiddicombe@saintmargarets.ca.

Parents Group, Wednesdays 10:00am – 11:30am

The St. Margaret’s Parents Group meets October – May and offers parents a morning of rest & rejuvenation. Parents gather for coffee and discussion while children are cared for in the Nursery by a team of volunteers. All are welcome!

Youth Group, Fridays 7pm – 9pm

The Youth Group is a safe, welcoming and fun-filled space for teens – a community rooted in God’s love, where youth receive encouragement, friendship and support as they journey toward adulthood. We welcome youth from all backgrounds to discover and engage with the Christian faith.

We meet Friday evenings to wind down and relax after the school week with games, activities and plain old hanging out. Some Friday night activities include movie nights, music-sharing sessions, laser tag, and an Art Night at the Great Blue Art Studio. In February we head out of town for a weekend-long Youth Retreat.


10:30am Sunday Service

Ages 0 – 4, Nursery: Children gather for a song, Bible story, and prayer before engaging in play. We provide a healthy nut-free snack each week. Parents are welcome to stay with their children or join worship upstairs.

Ages 4 – 6, Young Children in Worship: Inspired by the Montessori method, the Young Children in Worship program invites children to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format and multi-sensory materials. The Children in Worship space is set up as a beautiful, sacred and special place where children can encounter God through stillness, prayer, and play.

Ages 7-9: This class is all about engagement! Children hear the Bible through interactive storytelling and activities. Each class has a prayer time where children are encouraged to pray with their own words as well as through the words of Psalm 23, which they learn together.  This is a fun place to spend time with other kids getting to know God and one another.

Ages 10 & 11: In this class children take the Bible into their own hands... literally!  With Bibles on their laps, each child is encouraged to read and discuss the Gospel reading for the day. We talk about who Jesus is and let his words lead us into fascinating conversations. Children are encouraged to share their questions and ideas. Together this class learns to write and pray the Prayers of the Church.

Grades 7 – 12, Youth: On Sunday mornings we gather during the service for an informal and engaging Bible study. We often watch short video clips, wrestle with difficult questions and share stories from our own lives.

*Note: during the 2017/18 school year, the Sunday morning Youth will meet at 176 Ethelbert.
