Central has an incredible facility for newborns and toddlers and older children.

On Wednesday mornings, there is a Nursery available during Ladies’ Precept Bible Studies.

Central Soccer Ministry

Soccer is held for Kindergarten to Grade 6 every May & June for 8 weeks and coached by volunteers who are police checked and trained. There are 400 children who participate 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.
