Kids & Youth

Young Families

It can be challenging at times to bring your kids to church, so we try to help by providing some things to make your experience more positive at St. Mark’s:

  • a fully equipped nursery
  • change tables (in both the nursery and main floor washroom)
  • a small gym (for hockey or soccer) if you or your child needs to burn energy!
  • cookies and juice available after BLAST and worship
  • many friendly people who can offer a helping hand!

Through our BLAST and Youth programs we aim to provide a solid foundation for young people to grow in faith by teaching the central stories of the Bible.  



Kids – Faith Formation (BLAST)

Our BLAST program offers an engaging atmosphere for your child to learn about God’s love.  Our goal is to make learning fun for students and teachers alike.  Participation is open to children ages 3 – Grade 6.    We hope your family can join us!

On Sunday mornings your kids can experience…

  • a story in our Storytelling Oasis
  • making a craft in our Noah’s Art Room
  • playing an interactive computer game in our Skylab
  • playing games, making food and other interactive activities!

Feel free to contact our BLAST coordinator at    More details on BLAST here.



Youth Ministry

Our Youth Program is geared at young people in grades 7 to 12.   We tackle tough questions about God and the Bible,  helping young people explore Christian faith and theology and how it applies to their lives.  This involves open discussion on curriculum-based topics or whatever issue seems relevant on a given day.  And it’s not always serious stuff – service projects, social events, worship, lots of food and an occasional youth gathering too.

Our youth meet meet Sunday mornings at 9am and also during the week.

Check us out and make some great friends along the way!

For more information, contact our church office or stop by on a Sunday morning.  Feel free to join us!
