Children's ministries


Central has an incredible facility for newborns and toddlers and older children. So that parents may participate in other areas of CBC life, we offer a Nursery programming during Sunday services as well as for various Growth Groups. If a Growth Group has childcare it will be noted on their information page.

Junior Church

Jr. Church is offered during the Sunday Morning Worship Service from September to the end of May for children in JK to Grade 6.

Pioneer Clubs

Wednesdays 6:30 to 8:00 PM
Bring your children and teens to 90 minutes of activities every Wednesday from September to May.

The evening begins at 6:30 PM and ends at 8 PM. There are groups for :

  • Grades 1 to 6 ~ PIONEER CLUBS
  • Grades 7 to 12 ~ YOUTH Growth Groups

Vacation Bible School

VBS takes place each summer. More details are added closer to the season.

Central Soccer Ministry

Soccer is held for Kindergarten to Grade 5 every May & June for 8 weeks and coached by volunteers who are police checked and trained. Hundreds of children have participated in this incredible soccer ministry which includes a shirt, shorts, and socks along with medals and freezies for a snack. A lesson based on Scripture is shared during break-time at each game. Every year this soccer ministry fills up fast as it is well known throughout Brantford and the area.

All of our adult workers have gone through a “Plan to Protect” program which includes a Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Sector Search. A ‘Vulnerable Sector’ type of police check is the only kind accepted at Central Baptist Church & Central Baptist Academy. Be sure to get the right one when applying for your police check. It is valid for 3 years and the cost is reimbursed.
