City Kids is here to create an environment where children can find a place to belong and grow in their relationship with God. Our classes are staffed with adults and high school students who will help provide a fun and Jesus-centered experience for your kids.

When you arrive on Sunday Morning, someone will be there to help your kids check in and find where their classrooms will be.

Our kids stay with us for the the first part of the morning. After the singing, they will be released (ages  18 months -grade 5) to their age-appropriate classes.  After service, please pick up your aged 18 months -Kinder kids from their classrooms.  The older kids will return on their own.

We also have a Mother's Area available during the service where nursing moms can experience the service (Video ) while attending to the needs of their babies.
Be sure to ask your kids what they learned and what new friends they met!

City Kids Sunday Age 18 Months-Grade 5


To ensure that safety is kept a top priority we have a thorough screening process for all individuals interested in being a part of the team. We do so to guarantee everything we can possibly do to keep our kids and leaders safe is done.

  • Step 1: Completion of the Growth Track
  • Step 2: Criminal Record and Vulnerable Sector Checks.
Because children's ministry leaders are classified as a volunteer, the RCMP will waive all fees associated with these checks.

  • Step 3: Reference Checks
  • Step 4: Personal Interview / Meet your Dream Team Leader
  • Step 5: Training Videos
Training will be done specific to the role leaders will play in the environment they will serve in. Safety, policies /procedures, and culture specific training will also be done.

  • Step 6: Dream Team Honour Code
  • Step 7: Scheduling upon completion and approval.
