We love kids and their families, so a large portion of our facility is dedicated to making Jesus known to the emerging generation. To cater for the needs of our children, we offer a large range of activities.
We believe that it is our role to partner with parents in raising awesome children for God. When we can work together we can have a far greater impact. Our programmes will help build solid foundations and reinforce Godly values as our children discover what it means to be a friend of Jesus.
We will do this by:
- Providing a Children’s Programme which is led by well trained leaders who desire to see children grow in their faith.
- Promoting, providing and facilitating opportunities for family connections and learning.
- Promoting, providing and facilitating opportunities to reach other children and their families in the community.
Our kids programmes run at the 10.30am service, and the children usually leave about 15 minutes into the service. If you'd like your child to attend, talk to one of the welcomers when you arrive. You can also get in touch with us before hand if you have any questions.
Currently we do not have a programme for children under 3 years. The foyer is a space parents/caregivers can supervise their children and remain connected to what is happening in the auditorium.
All programs offer children a plain biscuit and drink for morning tea.
Discoverers is for those aged 3 to 5.5 years. This group meets in the church house lounge, at the rear of the church property. Discoverers is supervised by police-checked leaders and youth helpers.
There are a variety of indoor activities, and an outside playground.
Explorers runs activities and learning for those aged 5.5 to 11. This group meets in the church hall, on your right as you walk into the main building. It is run by police-checked adult leaders and youth helpers.
We use a large group/small group format.
- Bible Stories / Object Lessons
- Memory Verses
Pioneers is for those aged 11 to 13 (School years 7 to 9). This group meets upstairs - to the right after you go into the hall. Pioneers is also run by police-checked leaders. Activities are fun and also reflective at an appropriate level for this age group.
