Please pray for me as I struggle with chronic anxiety. It's causing daily life issues and I cannot control it. Constant worry and overthinking is paralyzing. I feel like I'm losing my mind.

Raising Our Kids Together

Parenting is tough, lonely and sometimes overwhelming. Raising kids who love Jesus and make a difference requires help. We believe that you have the greatest spiritual influence in their lives and we are here to partner with you. Together we can support you in raising up a generation of kids and young adults who have a solid spiritual foundation and change the world.




During our Sunday morning services, caring volunteers care for your little ones, read them Bible stories and engage them in age appropriate crafts and activities.


Once your little ones turn two and a half, they move to the preschool class on Sunday mornings, where they engage in songs, a Bible lesson, a craft, and play time. They stay here until they enter Grade One and graduate into our Senior Kids program.    


During our Sunday morning service, elementary school kids (SK to Grade 5) join in the auditorium for worship with their families and then head to their environment for large group engaging Bible teaching and small group fun and discussion.


Junior Youth meets on Sunday mornings at each of our locations, following a time of worship with the rest of the church community. Every other Thursday evening we meet for large group nights where we experience the fun of following Jesus through games, worship, question and response times. We welcome everyone and always encourage new friends to join us!

Senior Youth meets every Friday evening from 7-9pm where we engage together in the lifestyle of full devotion to Jesus through inspiration, connection and action. The third Friday of each month is our Action Night where we partner with our Southridge Anchor Causes to serve and connect with the action ministries across all three of our locations. 

Join us as we take part in the fun and joy of what it means to follow Jesus! We welcome everyone and always encourage new friends to join us!

Family Support


Our growing Family Support Ministry intends to reach ALL children and families to show them that they belong and can fully-participate in the church. We want every child to not only take part in our existing programs, but find true belonging, and experience friendships that make a difference. We aim to equip leaders in our programs in supporting all children and youth. Our Family Support Ministry Leaders work one-on-one with children that require extra support on Sunday mornings.

For families who are interested in learning more about how Southridge has a place for their family, please email Jenn Surtees. Families with children who may require support on a Sunday morning are encouraged to complete an All About Me sheet, so that our leaders are prepared to make this the best possible experience for your children.

Family Ministry Team

Our Family Ministry Team works with amazing volunteers to create our Sunday morning programs (nursery, pre-school, elementary and junior high) and mid week programs (junior high and senior high) that help kids and students grow in their relationship with Jesus. Through our crib to college strategy, partnership with parents, and by inviting kids and students (in age-appropriate ways) into a lifestyle of full devotion, we seek to foster spiritual growth in kids and students.
