mini-kids - UNDER 5 Years

Minikids is for children under 5 years. The children come into the children ministry room to engage with Bible stories and related activities, as well as dance along to worship music followed by playtime. We also have a dedicated parent's area in the auditorium.

We would encourage you to join us straight after the notices. If your child is happy to stay with the leader and the helper you can rejoin the service or you can stay with your child and participate in the activities.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14)

kid zone - PRIMARY School years

Children are precious to God therefore they are precious to us. We like our children to be part of our faith community time for the first 20 minutes of service before they head over to their designated ministry area. Our Kidzone team consists of an amazing group of passionate leaders and helpers who care for your children and support parents in their role of growing the faith of the children. Each Sunday children connect with Christ in a creative and safe environment, we also celebrate milestones like birthdays and achievements.

We gather together for a time of worship singing, large group lessons and activities, then children join their peer group for inspiring discussion.

Kidzone normally finishes around 11:15am. This gives parents time to connect with others over a cup of coffee or tea.

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

Mini-kids & KidZone is lead by interim volunteers, Mina Christophers and Iupita Loto-Aso.
