Children are always welcome in worship at St. Matthews, and activity bags are available in the narthex at the back of the church for kids wanting an activity or colouring during worship time. We also have a flexible space with a carpet, books and soft toys at the front right of the sanctuary (near the baptismal font). Young children and babies needing more activity can go to our well-equipped nursery located in the basement below the sanctuary (adjacent to the washrooms). The nursery is equipped with a TV monitor so you can follow along with the worship service if you would like. A baby changing table is available in the nursery.
During the school year, our nursery is supervised the second Sunday of every month by a great team of volunteers so families are welcome to stay with their child or leave them in the caring hands of our volunteers. (According to our Safe Church Policy, our volunteers have been approved by the pastor and undergone background checks. contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.)
In the summer months, the nursery is unsupervised but still available for your use. We appreciate you staying to supervise your child’s play during these times.
