Childern & Youth

Below is a list of childern & youth programs offered at Westdale United Church. If you have any questions about any of our programs please contact us for further information.

Kid’s Club and Childcare

The sound and sight of children at Westdale have always been welcomed and enjoyed.  Making time for the youngest of our congregation is a priority and our Kids’ Club and Nursery Room offers families a place for their children to be cared for, to form friendships, and to grow their love for God and the Christian faith.

Join us every Sunday morning at 10:30 where children will begin their time of worship in the Sanctuary with their family.  Rev. Bev has the pleasure of sharing time with the children up front prior to their departure to Kids’ Club and the Nursery Room.

Kids’ Club

Our newly renamed Sunday School program is now called Kids’ Club and it reflects the fun and friendship that is encouraged and nurtured here.  Children from Junior Kindergarten and up are welcome to join Tania and her many helpers every Sunday as we hear stories from the Bible and talk about its’ meaning in our lives, as well as exploring fun crafts, games and activities that reflect that faith message. 

Nursery Room

Our littlest members are warmly welcomed by two qualified students who provide an environment of care, cuddles and play time.  Parents or caregivers are invited to stay with their children if they wish or return to the service, being assured that if at any time their child is distressed or missing them, they will be reunited.  Parents or caregivers are encouraged to sign their children in to the Nursery leaving detailed instructions regarding bottles, diapers, snacks and special needs.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Tania or Rev. Bev at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our program is strengthened when parents and congregation members get involved.  If you would like to be a part of teaching and sharing your faith with the children please notify Tania by email.

Children and Worship

Children at Westdale are very much a part of what makes our services special.  Whether it is through the weekly children’s time up front with Rev. Bev, the planned intergenerational services that involve the children taking on roles during worship, the annual Christmas pageant, or their presence during the celebration of Baptism, children enrich the experience of our Westdale congregation.

Youth Group

Teens and pre-teens in Grades 5 to 12 are invited to be a part of our monthly Youth Group where we gather for faith building, social growth and tons of fun! Come out and experience a variety of activities with like-minded individuals while developing Christian character.  Invite your friends, all are welcome!
