Family Ministry

Nurturing Faith at Home
Armour Heights is dedicated to helping families deepen their faith together.  We do so by providing a variety of seasonal resources throughout the Christian year, sending out emails and newsletters with practical ideas for families to try, and we provide an annual TLC Workshop, including seminars on Nurturing Faith at Home. We also continue to focus on building our family library, with resources available for children, youth and parents alike.

Library
We have a growing Family Library with resources for Children, Youth, Parents, Families & Church School Leaders.  It is located in the Scott Duncan Hall by the windows.  Feel free to sign out books, CDs, & DVDs any time!

Special Events

Rally Day:  Every year on the Sunday following Labour Day weekend we kick off our new School Year with a gigantic party!  With a lively worship celebration, renewing of our covenant to grow and serve together throughout the year, and a delicious BBQ and bouncy castle, we celebrate who we are as family and who we are as God’s Children.

Advent Potluck, Crafts & Music Night: Each year on the first Sunday of Advent we get together for a fantastic evening of feasting, creating crafts, singing, and making meaningful gifts for others.  You won’t want to miss this celebration that helps us to prepare for the season of hoping and waiting and anticipation!

Christmas Party: Each year after the Children’s Christmas Pageant dress rehearsal, we celebrate with our annual Christmas Party!

Christmas Carolling: Each year all ages are invited to tour around the neighbourhood singing carols.  Afterward everyone heads back to the church for hot chocolate and cookies!  Usually the last  Sunday before Christmas.

Pancake Supper: Every year on Shrove Tuesday (the day before Lent begins — usually in February) all ages are invited to come and enjoy loads of Pancakes and Sausages!  After Supper there is a short program especially geared toward children.  Always fun for all ages!

Church School Picnic: Mid-June we celebrate the year by thanking the Church School leaders and then enjoying a Church School Picnic after worship.  There are games, face   painting, lots of food, etc. All ages are welcome!

  • WE ARE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS…

    Portland Place
    - Several times each year we celebrate and share with the people of Portland Place. Through karaoke, bbq's, Christmas parties, flower garden planting and more, we share in the lives of our inner-city brothers and sisters.

    Evangel Hall
    - Once or twice each year we have the opportunity to prepare and serve dinner at Evangel Hall, providing dinner for 80-100 people. It is a wonderful time of blessing for all involved.

    Prayer Shawls
    - Our Prayer Shawl ministry team provides prayer shawls for those who are ill, new babies, university students, confirmation participants, and more. It is a wonderful blessing for both those who create and those who receive these meaningful shawls.

    Senior's Lunch
    - Each month we provide lunch and a speaker for seniors who live in our community. We invite speakers to share insights on relevant health issues, particularly for seniors.

    Christmas
    We share in many outreach ministries during the Advent and Christmas Season including:
    - Mitten Tree: each year we collect mittens, hats, and scarves for people living in Toronto
    - Christmas Angels: we help new refugee families celebrate their first Christmas in Canada with warm clothes, food, and some special gifts.
    - YSM (Yonge Street Mission) Shoe-boxes: families load up shoe-boxes filled toys for inner-city children living in Toronto.
