First Reformed Church


All Volunteers at First Reformed Church have been approved by the consistory of First Reformed Church to hold their respective volunteer positions. We strive to provide you with a warm and welcoming atmosphere while doing our due diligence to ensure that FRC is a safe and accessible environment.


All volunteers who are in authority or responsibility over any and all vulnerable persons have received a Police Check complete with a vulnerable persons sector. Volunteers are trained and work in pairs or more to provide accountability. We also provide hall monitors to ensure the safety of children and youth during programs and Sunday Service


Our volunteers have received training in regards to Accessibility in Ontario (AODA) to provide the greatest possible customer service for persons with disabilities. Our facility is accessible complete with a wheelchair ramp and elevator. We are currently waiting on the installation of a wheelchair button on our front door. In the meantime, there is always a greeter available during Sunday Worship to open the door for those who require assistance.
