Our prayer is that young people come to know Jesus, live as his children in this world and persevere as Christians into adulthood. We teach the bible in an age-appropriate way, have lots of fun and build relationships with the children and their families. We also seek to equip parents and carers in their important role as primary disciplers of their children.
On a Sunday we join together as an all-age church family at 10.30am. There is a short, engaging children’s talk and song in the main service before children leave for Creche (0-3) and Sunday Club (4-11). Creche is run by experienced volunteers who play with the children, sing and read stories so parents can confidently re-join the main service.
Sunday Club uses Mustard Seeds curriculum, teaching alongside the bible teaching from the main service. The children have lots of fun in their group as they learn from age-related bible teaching, craft, songs and games. This broad age group is sometimes split to provide opportunity for more supported, age related learning and fun.
Endure is our youth bible, study group. It is for all youth in years 7 and up. We meet fortnightly on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm at The Rectory for pizza and bible study. Our prayer for our youth is that they will endure in their faith through their teenage years.
Every Thursday between 4 pm and 5:15 pm is Rock Solid, our youth club for children in school years 5 - 8. This runs in the Church building and is a time of games, fun, tuck shop, and questions of faith.
