Kids Sangha

Connect: Kids Sangha

 

At Toronto Buddhist Church we welcome all families!

Our vision is to bring together young children of all ethnic backgrounds and help them learn and experience the Buddha Dharma in a way that is relevant to their everyday lives.

Our Kids Sangha program is run in a safe and fun environment by a team of volunteers who are passionate about teaching children. Our hope is that children aged 4 to 13 years of age will build new friendships, have fun and feel good about the time spent at the Temple as they participate in activity-based programs geared towards this age group.

Kids Sangha meets every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the Month – please refer to our calendar for the exact dates.

View our Calendar

Kids Service – 10:30 am – 11:00 am in the Hondo.
Kids Activities – 11:00 am – 12:00 pm downstairs in the classrooms.

We encourage parents to join in on our Kids Service at 10:30 AM, then stay and enjoy the regular service while the children participate in the activity from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.

After service, children and their parents are invited to enjoy some refreshments with family and friends before heading home.
