Children and Youth at St.Paul’s

Here’s what’s going on for children and youth at St.Paul’s

It’s important to us at St. Paul’s that children be given time to worship together with their families and with an inter-generational community of faith.

One of the ways we help make that happen is by providing the option of Family Tables to those who are joining us for worship with younger children. Family Tables include colouring and activity sheets, as well as a few small toys for busy little hands. Families can also request their very own Communion Kits which make it possible for them to share Communion together around their table as a family.

If you would like to book a family table for you and the young people in your life, email the parish office or call by Thursday and we will be sure to have a table ready for you on Sunday.

Partway through the service on Sunday mornings, children in Grade 2 and younger are invited to gather in the parish hall for an interactive story time lead by our children’s’ ministry team.

This special program for younger children takes place while the sermon and prayer time takes place in the main worship gathering. After having time and space to engage in some creative reflection and play, these children will rejoin their families with enough time in time to participate in Communion and our closing time of praise

In addition to being a part of an inter generational community of faith, we know how important it is for children to have their own time of more age-specific fellowship and spiritual formation, and that’s what our KidsClub is all about.

Normally, KidsClub happens at St. Paul’s on Monday nights from 6:15pm to 7:30pm. Each week there will be games, crafts, stories, and snacks and lots of chance to experience the kind spiritual fellowship and formation with people their own age that will help them have a growing faith for years to come.

KidsClub will kick-off this Monday, September 13th with a BBQ, bonfire, and mini-golf at the Fire Fly Recreation campground (64 Robertson Rd, Hampton) from 6:15-7:30pm. Please contact us in advance to let us know if you plan to attend.

Riverside Youth is a group for anyone ages 11-18 living alongside the Kennebecasis or Hammond Rivers. Just like KidsClub does for our younger kids, Riverside Youth gives our young people a chance to experience the kind spiritual fellowship and formation with people their own age that will help them have a growing faith well into adulthood.

This group will be starting in October. But to kick things off this Sunday, Sept 12, we will meet for burgers at ‘Burgers at Busters’ from 6-7:30pm! All are invited, burgers on us, hope to see you there

Worship with us this Sunday at St.Paul’s.

We would love to worship with you this Sunday at St. Paul’s

Whether it’s in-person or online, the people of St. Paul’s are passionate about gathering together for worship, fellowship, prayer and to help one another grow in our experience of God’s goodness and love, and we’re committed to keeping one another safe whenever and wherever we gather.

With all that in mind, here’s what we are asking people to do if they would like to gather with us in person:

1. If you’re not feeling well please stay home and join us live online. You can join us live online every Sunday over Zoom, just CLICK HERE.

2. Please wear a mask. Face coverings are no longer mandatory, but we do encourage everyone who can to please wear a mask when coming in to St. Paul’s for any public gatherings.

3. If you want to sing in the congregation during the service, once again, please wear a mask. We know it’s unpleasant, but it’s still one of the best ways we can protect each other.

4. Please save socializing with people outside your immediate circle of family and friends outside the church building before and/or after the service.

Our hope and prayer is that hospitalization rates in our province will stay low, that infection rates in our province will go down as more people get vaccinated, and that gradually worship at St.Paul’s will safely be able to look more and more like it did before the pandemic.

In the meantime, we are grateful for your patience and cooperation.


And, of course, you can still join us for worship live online from the safety and comfort of your own home every Sunday morning.

Online “Coffee Time” starts at 9:30am, and worship starts at 10am.


Family Tables

Family Tables, which include colouring and activity sheets, as well as a few small toys for busy little hands, are available at each of our worship gatherings.

KINGDOM IMPACT MEMORY SYSTEM

learning to carry the kingdom of God wherever we go

The Kingdom Impact Memory System (KIMS) was developed by Michael Frost and Graham Joseph Hill to help people commit the words of Scripture to memory in a way that would challenge them to become more generous, hospitable, Sprit-led, Christ-like, and purposeful followers of Jesus.

Several of us have started to work our way through the KIMS, and you can too. We will post each week’s KIMS plan below. Just open it up and following along.
