Our services include our MotherCare programs for women who are pregnant. Next Step programs for moms and children under 36 months of age, and CAPC programs for families with children under 6 years of age.

We are currently providing services such as telephone support called Friendly visiting, as well as online ZOOM sessions and much more.

To see if you qualify, give us a call locally @705-733-3227 ext 2160. Someone will call you back and chat with you about your specific situation and how we might be able to serve you.

We would love to have you join us online once you sign up for our services.

Our current ZOOM sessions happen Thursday mornings from 10-11 am. That session (each week) is for those in MC, NS and CAPC. We are also offering online MC Zoom sessions for those who are pregnant for the first time or for those who have not had a baby in 6 years or more. That session is Tuesday afternoons from 2-3 p.m.

You may also be eligible to receive a gift card each week if you are pregnant and or have a child under 36 months of age.

With the current Covid-19 restrictions, the Kidz Club team has taken some time to think outside the box to create a fall program alternative. Introducing: Kidz Club at Your Stop!

Every Tuesday starting October 6th until December 8th we will be at our Kidz club bus stop locations handing out Kidz Club bags filled with snacks, prizes, a Kidz Club lesson, and activity sheets! We will be sharing a short lesson, hosting spirit days, and maybe even a game! Even though short (about 15 minutes in length) we are so thankful to safely connect with everyone during this time! Required face coverings/masks and socially distanced measures will be in place.

To register your child for a free bag and find out the exact meeting spot at your site, feel free to email Maddie Neuman the Kidz Club director at Big Church at maddie.n@bigchurch.cc or by phone at (705) 252-6248 ext 104.
