    FUN AT THE FARM!
  • Meet at UCG at10:15– Fun at the Farm!  Field Trip to Zocalo Farm outside Hillsburgh

    Did you ever wonder what it takes to be an organic farmer? UCG friends Beth Klapwyk and Seb Ramirez have kindly offered to host us at their organic farm for a tour, campfire, sing-a-long and pot-luck lunch. It will be both a fun time to connect and learn about organic farming. Dress for the weather and there will be a walk to the campfire area at the back of the farm. 

    Bring a dish to share if you are able.  

  • Location: Zocalo Farm, Outside Hillsburgh

    NO RE PROGRAMMING
  • We ask that all new and returning youth have their parent/guardian fill out a registration form, once per year.  Thanks for sharing with us about your child!

    Occasionally we have intergenerational services, in which our children and youth participate as part of the entire service.

    Children are welcome to stay in the service if they prefer or in the sunshine room, where they can select an item to explore from our activities box.  Children must be supervised before, during and after service.  We ask that all folks walk for the safety of all congregants.

    We begin at 10:30am by gathering together in the santuary.  We often sing an opening song, light the chalice and have opening words.  We then invite the children to come up to the front for a story time.  After the story, we create an arch way and sing our children out to their Religious Exploration program, facilitated by our RE staff.

    After service, children and youth return upstairs.  We ask that children be supervised by the adult who accompanied them to service.  As it is a shared space and quite full on a Sunday mondays, we ask that all people walk verses run and be mindful of those around them.

    PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide Religious Exploration programming on holiday weekends.  Children who do attend are welcome to stay in the service or pick an item to colour or create from our activity box located in the Sunshine room.

    There is a park located across the street and a community garden in the back.  We are a few minutes walk to the speed river.
