Melrose United Church offers a safe and welcoming environment where Children of all ages can learn and grown together. We believe in having the children participate in many parts of church life and worship, so we try to have the children present during communion, baptisms and other important events.
Children and Youth are invited to go directly to the Kid's Corner in the Sanctuary at the start of the service. Midway through the service the children are invited to hear a special lesson at the front of the sanctuary. Afterwards, they will go to the auditorium for Sunday School. Those with infants are welcome to use the Church Nursery.
Melrose provides fun, food and fellowship for families of all kinds. There are many seasonal activities for the whole family throughout the year including TGIF nights, Breakfast with Santa, Parents Night Out and more!
We offer Sunday morning programming for children of all ages. Kids will walk through and learn about the bible through interactive games, crafts, videos and stories. Kids are always encouraged to attend our fun family events through the year.
We understand the importance of facilitating connection opportunities for teens in our community. Our Youth Group, Ignite Youth Ministries, offers young adults a chance to participate in fun activities while asking the hard questions as they journey and explore their Faith. Past activities have included Movie Nights, Escape Rooms, and Bowling! Youth Confirmation Classes available upon request.
We have a newly renovated Nursery for our infants. This space is available for parents to use at any point during the service. Our Nursery is equipped with comfortable furniture, toys and books. There is also a speaker that can be turned on to tune into the Service in the sanctuary. Changing tables are available in both our Men’s and Women’s washrooms.
