Birth- 2 Years
For families with infants we have a viewing room with audio feed, seating and infant toys at the back of the sanctuary in case your child becomes restless during the church service.
Hillside’s Nursery provides safety-conscious care for children who are Pre-school to Kindergarten age during the Sunday morning service. Age-appropriate Bible lessons, art, crafts and play are part of our Sunday morning program. Hillside has a bright and spacious nursery in which we care for the children, with a wide selection of toys, books and play equipment. We ensure that the children are supervised by qualified persons during the church service, and drop-off and pick-up of each child is closely monitored.
“Go” is our ministry for children in Grades 1 to 5. Children are welcomed, valued and cared for while they learn what the Bible tells us about God’s love for us, who Jesus is, and how to follow Him. Go is a child-centered program involving games, crafts, music, and small group time, all presented in a way that seeks to be fun, engaging and relevant. This ministry takes place each week during the church service.
It is important to us that, in addition to caring for the children well, all our leaders are appropriate persons for their roles. Criminal record checks are kept up to date for all adults in children’s ministries at Hillside and the church follows strict guidelines for childcare which are available to parents on request.
“Sunday 67” is our ministry for grades 6 to 8. On Sunday mornings, during the teaching portion of the morning service, young people in grades 6 to 8 are invited to participate in age-appropriate teaching and activities with a team of our youth leaders. This generally involves Bible teaching, discussion, and games.
