Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

We take joy in providing Church School for children three years old and up during our 10:00 am Sunday services. Children are an integral part of Ladner United Church. They are always welcome, whether you choose to have your children stay with you during service or attend Church School.

We follow the Sparkhouse “Whirl” Church School curriculum which imaginatively engages scripture through activities, discussion, current events, and the arts so that your children can go into the contemporary world to test, share, and live out their faith.

Please join us as we share Bible stories, have fun with crafts and activities, play music and prepare for special church events.

Parish Health Ministry

Parish Health Ministry

The Parish Health Ministry emphasizes the wholeness of body, mind and spirit rooted in the vision of Christ as our healer. The Parish Health Ministry is a key expression and embodiment of our three key words (Connect, Deepen and Engage) and five directions:

  • Be a place where people make connections
  • Be a community services hub
  • Be a place of family accompaniment
  • Practice participative leadership
  • Think creatively and strategically about all our resources and gifts

It is made up of dedicated volunteers who formalize quarterly meetings to organize programs and health-related workshops for the community.

The Parish Health Ministry has offered meditation workshops, healing prayer, chronic pain self-management, a SafeTALK suicide prevention program, and a home visiting program that enables us to keep in touch with those who are ill or can no longer attend church.

Craft Group

Ladner United Church Craft Group welcomes anyone who loves connecting with others through crafting. The LUC Craft Group makes crafts that are sold at the Bazaar and other fundraising events, while providing a space to experience connectedness within the community of faith.

We meet in the home of one of our members and welcome any new additions! We would appreciate hearing from you if you like to do a bit of sewing, knitting or crocheting. Fabric, wool, creative ideas, even tea and cookies are provided for you. We don’t have enough hands and would love to include you!

There is no expectation to come every week or stay for the afternoon. If you have any questions, or would like a ride to Craft Group, please contact our church office.

Breath, Body & Spirit

Breath, Body & Spirit

“Focusing on the act of breathing clears the mind of all daily distractions and clears our energy enabling us to better connect to the Spirit within.”
–Author Unknown

The Breath, Body and Spirit program is a drop-in prayerful mediation program with no registration required. All movements can be practiced by anyone and are done from a seated position. The relaxation sequence of Breath, Body and Spirit lasts 45 minutes and is followed by a time of tea and conversation together. We meet on Wednesdays at 1:30pm in the Church Hall. Programs regularly run in the Fall and Spring. Contact the church office for more details on the upcoming season.

Prayer Labyrinth

Prayer Labyrinth

A prayer labyrinth is a small path which leads, via a circuitous route, to the center of an intricate design and back out again. It is used to facilitate prayer, meditation, spiritual transformation, and global unity. Prayer labyrinths have been used in a wide variety of cultures for thousands of years. At LUC we enjoy our own special space provided for this time of prayer and reflection.
