Q: Is the church accessible?

St. Bride's is wheelchair accessible.  Those with mobility issues should enter through the rear entrance where greeters will be ready to meet you on a Sunday.  They can arrange for someone to take you up in the elevator to the main church. Next to the elevator on the ground level there is a wheelchair accessible washroom.

Please note that we also have assistive listening devices for those who are hard of hearing and large print bulletins for those who wish them. Guide dogs are welcome.

Q: Where do my kids go?

During our regular 10am  Sunday services, we offer program for children from preschool to Grade 8 called the Good News Club.  Children start in the service with their parents, then are called to the front for a Children's Talk.  At the end of the talk, the children process downstairs to an opening.  For those children too shy to go up to the front, they are free to join in the procession downstairs; parents are of course welcome to come down with them to get them settled.  Downstairs we have a short opening program then the children are divided up by age for smaller group teaching.  At the end of the service, you can pick your children up in their classrooms. 

We also have a well equipped nursery at the back of the church for infants with a window to the main church and an audio feed so that you can listen in to the service.

Q: What if I need assistance?

St. Bride's Wardens wear orange robes so they are easy to spot!  They would be happy to help you in any way.  If you are looking for assistance during the week, give the church office a call at 905-822-0422 or email info@churchofstbride.com.

Q: Can I meet the Pastor?

Our minister, Stephen, usually greets parishioners outside before the 10:00 am service.  Whomever is preaching or assisting will also be there to greet you on the way out of any of our services.  Of course, you can also arrange a meeting during the week with Stephen or another member of our clergy team.  If you are visiting on a Sunday, an easy way to make contact is to fill out one of the visitor cards in the pew and put it on the collection plate or hand it to the minister or wardens on your way out.  Stephen will contact you in the following week to follow up.  You can email him at rector@churchofstbride.com

Q: How do I meet new people?

If it is your first time at St. Bride's, be sure to mention it to the greeters on your way in.  They will be able to give you a warm welcome and answer any questions.  They will also let someone know to look out for you during coffee time which follows the 10:00 am services downstairs in the Church Hall.  Coffee time usually starts between 11:00 and 11:15 am and is a great way to meet others. Downstairs, there is a welcome station set up with information on the church and a slideshow playing.  If you head over there after grabbing a coffee, you are sure to meet someone who wiill be happy to chat with you.  

St. Bride's has a number of active small groups for Bible Study.  These are another great way to get to know others in our church.  There is also a Newcomer's Evening run twice a year.
