Free clubs in Chatham

Everyone can be part of something special!

Due to the COVID-19 state of emergency, all children's programs are suspended until further notice. Resources that support ongoing learning about God's kingdom are available online, and you can reach Dave Charron, our Children and Youth Director, by sending him a message.

SUNDAY PROGRAMS

Every week kids aged newborn to grade 5 participate in fun and engaging environments. We make it our goal that families have such a good experience that they can't wait to come again next time.

WEEKDAY PROGRAMS

Kids' clubs and a youth group take place in the evenings each week. Not only can parents expect a short break, your kids will look forward to activities and events that are what memories are made of.

Praise Patch

Sunday mornings 10:15-11:30AM
Drop off starts at 10:00AM

You’re a pre-schooler and the world is bursting with newness and each day is filled with new discoveries. Remember what it was like to wonder about the shape of the moon, who thought to colour the butterfly like that, or where that bird went? We want for our pre-schoolers to grow up knowing: God made me; God loves me; Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

We will care for your children in this safe environment so you can fully experience the Sunday morning worship experience each week.

UNLOCKED

Unlocked

Sunday mornings 10:15-11:30AM
Drop off starts at 10:00AM

At Unlocked we strive to point kids to Jesus by giving them a place to belong and a leader who believes in them. We want them asking questions about God, the Bible, and about life. Questions like these help them unlock their understanding of faith, friendship, and wisdom found in the bible.

Unlocked is where children experience small groups, much like adults do in home churches. Kids gather together as a large group to learn and discover the bible as one whole story and worship through song. Children finish out each morning in small groups, engaging in meaningful activities and discussion to reinforce the big idea. Kids will learn how each story in scripture connects to God’s big story that points them to Jesus.

This program is designed specifically for kids in JK to Grade 5.

At Unlocked we concentrate on Three Truths:

  • I need to make the wise choice;
  • I can trust God no matter what;
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

TRANSIT

Grade 6 to Grade 8
Sunday programs

Transit

Sunday mornings 10:15-11:30AM
Drop off starts at 10:00AM

Transit runs from September to May, and helps students move from our children’s environments to fully participating in the life and work of the church. Each week, students meet in the church library with their leaders to have their own focused discussion time, or to join in with another aspect of Sunday mornings at St. Paul's DISCOVER LIFE.

Students are invited to join us at “Transit” every Sunday morning starting with a drop off time of 10AM.

Souled Out

Wednesday Evenings 7:00-9:00PM
All students are welcome
In the SPY Building (behind the church)

If you are a teenager who’s looking for a safe and engaging environment with other teenagers, you have found the right place. “Souled Out” is designed for all teenagers, not just those who come to church. We are a welcoming youth group of over 35 students and caring leaders who meet each Wednesday in the SPY building (behind the church) from 7PM-9PM.

Souled Out is a weekly time out with friends to enjoy each other’s company, play fun games, learn about discovering life with a monthly engaging topical series designed to leave students with lasting understanding of three things: I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my Creator; I belong to Jesus Christ and we are defined by who He says we are; I exist every day to demonstrate God’s love to a broken world.
