This summer, our SUMMER BLAST kids nights return along with SPLASH PAD PLAY DATES for kids (and parents). All of the details are below!

If you have any questions or would like more information about any of the events we're running this summer, please contact Ben Spears, our Youth and Family pastor, at Aside from these special events, we have a fully staffed nursery and our kidZONE program for kids on Sunday mornings.

Back by popular demand are our Summer Blast kids nights!  For two Wednesday nights this summer (July 5th and July 26th), we're running some fun-filled events for kids JK to Grade 5. Each night will feature a great theme and corresponding Bible lesson along with music, games, crafts, and draws for awesome prizes!

Also, on each of our SUMMER BLAST nights we will be providing kids with a free supper, so this is a great opportunity for parents to drop off their kids and enjoy a bit of a date night. Supper will consist of kid-friendly food (for example: pizza, veggie sticks, juice and a dessert). Each event will run from 5:30-8:15pm (supper from 5:45-6:15pm) and will be run by volunteers who have submitted police checks and have been screened and trained according to our church's Plan to Protect policy. You can sign your kids in at 5:15pm and they can enjoy some supervised outdoor play time. There are no registration costs, but we are asking parents to register their kids no later than a week before each event. YOU CAN REGISTER ONLINE HERE or pick up a hardcopy at the church.

This summer, we are once again organizing regular "play dates" at the Centrepointe Park and Splash Pad (114 Centrepointe Drive, Nepean)! These are great opportunities for families from our church and community, including our POP group, to connect with each other over the summer months!

We'll be meeting on Mondays from 10:30am-12:30pm from July 3 to August 14 (weather permitting). The park features a great splash pad for cooling off on those hot summer days, a large playground, and on-site washrooms (an essential!). Parents are encouraged to bring a snack or even a picnic lunch for you and your kids to enjoy. Even if the weather is cooler, we can still meet around the playground, although the play dates will be cancelled if it's raining. While Arlington Woods is organizing the play dates, the expectation is that you will be supervising your own children.

Just a reminder to bring sunscreen, water bottles, hats, swimwear & towels, a snack/lunch, and some hand sanitizer (in case the soap supply in the washrooms runs low).

If you have any questions or would like further details, please contact Ben Spears, the Family Ministries Pastor at Arlington Woods Church, at or 613-596-9390 x228.
