Children and Youth

A Space for Every Age

As a parish, we are devoted to walking with our children and young people from the very youngest ages all the way to adulthood.

Infants

An infant-care room is ready for anyone with infants who wish to have a place to take their child and still be able to be in the service. The room is at the back of the sanctuary (next to the sound booth), and is equipped with dimming lights, a rocking chair, toys and books, and a speaker to help you keep up with the service. Please ask any of the greeters, and they will point you to the room.

Children

Ages 1 to 3

Our nursery is available to parents with young children. The room is bright and clean, and well stocked with toys, activities, and books to engage your toddler. The nursery is available from the very start of the 10:30 a.m. service. Parents and children are invited to the congregation in time for the Eucharist to be able to receive as a family.

Ages 4 to Grade 5

Throughout the year, children ages 4 to grade 5 are invited to attend children's church programs. From September to June, a Sunday school time is designed to engage children with scripture, story, liturgy, and prayer using  Godly Play  curriculum. 

"Summer Snacks and Stories" runs during July and August, and is a time to hear good stories from the Bible and other books, and to share snacks together. 

If you're in grades 6-12, St. Aidan's youth group is for you! Youth Group

Our youth ministry is powered by 3 'seriouses':

  • Take God seriously, which means we spend a significant amount of time studying scripture, praying, and learning to pray.
  • Take each other seriously, which means spending lots of time together, learning to love each other, and learning to receive from Christ from one another.
  • Take our Christian tradition seriously, which means following the Church Seasons, and drawing strength from the prayers, creeds, and lives of the followers of Jesus who came before us.

We acknowledge that Jesus, the Lord of all, has called His Church to be a Church of all nations. With joy and in humility we gather on Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Ojibwe, Saulteaux, Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda, and the homeland of the M├ętis Nation.
