The Peterborough Free Methodist Church places a high value on outreach, teaching and discipleship of children and young people within the church and community. Our children’s programming is led by Rev. Holly Raymond, our Associate Pastor of Student Ministries along with many valuable volunteers. Each of our Children’s Ministry volunteers are screened, trained and agree to adhere to our Plan to Protect Policy.
