Mark 10: 14: The Little Children and Jesus

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these". 

Nursery Care


A bright, staffed nursery is available for infants and toddlers (age 3 and under). Volunteers from the congregation take turns providing supervision for this area. A variety of toys and books for young children are available. The Nursery also includes a change table, a crib, child rocking chairs, and child sized tables and chairs. Infants and toddlers may go straight to the Nursery at the beginning of worship, or they may stay with their families until the time when all children go to Church School.

Proverbs 22:6: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Church School (ages 4 and up)

Christian Education for school aged children is an important ministry at Hopedale Presbyterian Church. Volunteers teach children under the guidance of the Bible, Prayer, and Children's Christian Education Programs. The children learn about God’s Word by participating in prayer, song, bible stories, discussions and sharing, drama, arts and crafts, and games. On Sunday mornings, the children attend the beginning of the worship service and leave for their Church School class after their time with the Minister. Church School operates from September through June. During the summer, children can meet together for a story, a colouring activity, and play.
