Family & Youth Ministry

Check out this video of some of our young people talking about the 
Christmas Story in their own words. 

WRU Kids Christmas 2020


We currently offer a youth group for anyone in grades 7 through 12 on alternating Friday evenings. All youth are welcome, regardless of whether they attend this, or any other church. We provide a safe and welcoming environment for all young people, regardless of beliefs, culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Our building is fully accessible, with a ramp, private washroom, and elevator.

We spend our time learning about ourselves and our community, and exploring our personal faith through a variety of activities. Our themes and activities are youth-led, meaning that we plan based on the interests and needs of the youth who come. We gather together for games, discussions, activities, community outings, sleepovers, movies, holiday activities, outreach and service projects.  

Bring yourself, bring a friend, and let's have some fun while exploring our faith! Check our weekly Network for upcoming gathering dates and times.
