The 9.30am service is especially designed to be welcoming to young families. We aim to enable people of all ages to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus.
We endeavor to follow the example of Jesus in welcoming children into his kingdom.
People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” - Luke 18:15-17
This page gives you information about our facilities including our Parents and Babies room, Crèche and Sundaykids Groups. We have an outside enclosed area for the children to play in after the services which includes play equipment and a sandpit. We also provide a special morning tea for children on the verandah leading to this play area.
At the 9.30am service children come for the first 1/2 hour or so of the service. In this time there is an all age talk and song that is aimed especially for them. Then they go out to their Sunday Kids groups while the adults listen to the sermon.During this time the children go out during the to their Sunday Kids groups. There they do craft, games and songs as well as talking about the bible story for that sunday.
You can see and hear the service on the TV monitor. This room is designed for parents to take their babies to, when they are making a noise that is disturbing others in the church service. It is located in the partioned area of the foyer. (A baby change table is located in our disabled toilet room if needed).
