There are churches in Burlington that have not been able to renew the contract with their pastor.

There are churches that have had to merge with neighbouring churches.

There are a number who think they just might have to give up.

And then there are churches that are vibrant, packed, have growing congregations.

The why of the difference is beyond this article.

One of the churches that is healthy is Port Nelson United Church – and they are looking for a COORDINATOR OF NURSERY/TODDLER MINISTRY

This is more of an advertisement than a news story – we are comfortable in letting the news pages be used to recruit the kind of help that healthy congregations need.

The primary focus of the nursery/toddler Coordinator is to provide a consistent welcoming presence/relationship with parents and the children working with the volunteers to ensure a safe, caring environment for Sunday mornings (10 a.m. -12 noon) September through June.

This is a paid position that could be shared by 2 individuals

– To maintain up to date registration forms and information about the infants & toddlers with parent information for ease of contact.

– Oversee sign-in/sign out procedures; ensuring the use of JTECH paging devices

– To establish excellent working relationships with the volunteers overseeing and assisting in their engagement with the children

– Ensure care of equipment and toys in the Nursery and that they are age appropriate, safe, clean and well organized for easy child access

– Ensure that all supplies needed are provided for the comfort & safety of the children

– Communicate any concerns to the Spiritual Growth Ministry

    Good for them. Where we worship there are no children hence no programs except for a one week Camp in the Summer and the median age of the adults attending is 78 years old. Our minister gives great sermons, the choir loves music, we volunteer in the community, but where are the “new” people? With three elementary schools being closed in the area, why would young families wish to move to the area? Housing isn’t affordable either even though a walkable community. Pondering thoughts for sure.

    Port Nelson United is indeed a vibrant church congregation . They are currently undertaking a $4 million renovation, which is highly unusual for a contemporary mainstream Protestant church. Much of the credit is due to their current minister Michael Brooks and his team. I had the pleasure to get to know Michael through our recent successful collaboration on the One Burlington event. Port Nelson is indeed fortunate to have him.
