We think kids are so precious that they should be seen AND heard!
To help kids and youth build friendships and know how much God loves them, we've got lots of fun activities just for them.
Kids & Youth - on Sundays
We love having kids as part of our church community, so we have special programs just for them. We use stories, craft, games and songs to teach to help children learn about God's love for us in Jesus and how to love others. All our leaders are accredited to work with children and have a current a Working with Children Check (WWCC) Number.
At our 9am gathering kids stay with their parents in church for the first part of the service including a kids song and then we run a Crèche/Pre-school program and an infants kids church program (designed for kids up to year 2).
At our 4pm gathering kids in Crèche and Preschool are signed into their programs from 3:50pm. Those in Infants (K-2), Primary (3-5) and CY Sundays (6-9) stay in church for the first part of the service before heading out to their programs. You can download a brochure below that outlines kids church at 4pm.
There's also a parents room for Babies with change table & video feed.
Contact Mark Taylor (our Kids and Youth Minister) for more info.
We also host a number of Community Parenting Events (like 1-2-3 Magic and seminars by experienced presenters) each year because we want to support local families - after all, parenting our kids is the most challenging and rewarding undertaking of our lives!
