Children & Youth
Our children’s ministry is an essential piece of our full Sunday morning experience. We integrate Biblical learning, worship music, and hands-on activities each week to help foster a love of Christ and the Bible in our children. We are using The Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum; a favorite for many families.
Currently at the South Congregation, Children’s Church meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. Children’s Church will resume again soon bi-weekly at the Centre congregation.
The aim of the entire ministry is to come alongside parents and serve their families as they are the primary disciple makers of their children.
Muddy Church is a new to us initiative for families to come together, explore and wonder, in and about God’s creativity in nature.
The Youth Group is a place for young people to relax, have some fun together, and share their thoughts, experiences and struggles related to their faith. We have a joint group comprising young people from both the Centre and South congregations. We meet during the service on the second Sunday of the month at the South congregation and the fourth Sunday at the Centre congregation.
We use games and quizzes to help everyone relax and get to know each other better and we give time for everyone to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences honestly. We use different programmes and websites, e.g. Youth Alpha, to help us explore the Bible and our faith.
We want very much to emphasise meeting the youth where they are, rather than force-feeding them the “right” answers. We want the Youth Group to be a place where the young people can honestly explore and build their faith.
