Welcome to the 2019 Church Year!

January – June 2019: 

 

Wee Care (up to age 5)

Our childcare staff will be introducing more structured activities for our younger kids this year – age-appropriate songs, stories and other activities that relate to our monthly theme. We welcome parents and caregivers who would like to lead a song or read the story – Email Arran to find out more.

SPACE Program

This Spring our children will be working together to explore the same monthly themes the adults are examining in the sanctuary. Follow the link to find out what is coming up for your child’s age group:

Youth groups

We will have a number of activities for youth including:

  • OWL Program – Grade 7 – 9
    Some Sundays & two overnight retreats (Starts Jan 20), 10.30 am – Emerald Room *** Pre-registration required ***

    • Unlike many other sexuality curricula currently available, this program is comprehensive and progressive. In an inclusive and developmentally appropriate manner, it addresses sensitive topics that are typically excluded. Our experienced OWL leaders look forward to helping your children and youth explore questions about sexuality, relationships and boundaries in this interactive program. It is built on four core values: Self-worth, sexual health, responsibility, and justice & inclusivity.
  • Youth Conferences (grade 9-12)
    • There are a number of UU youth conferences coming up in the next few months in the Pacific West region.
  • ‘Soul Matters’ group (Grade 10 – 12) Next date to be confirmed – Email Arran to get a notice when the date is set
    • A small group that will explore spirituality, including our monthly themes, in more depth. What does it mean to be UU? How do you apply our values in your life?
  • Trans youth group (Grade 6 – 12) Next date to be confirmed – Email Arran to get a notice when the date is set
    • All gender-fluid, non-binary and trans-identified youth are welcome to join our monthly group. The group will be led by trans-identified people and topics will include:
      • Exploring what is unique about trans-spirituality
      • Images of trans folk in various religions
      • Rituals for trans experiences
