We’d love your children to join us for a fun time learning about God.
All age specific programmes for ages 1 – 12 years old are led by trained volunteers.
Everyone is welcome and following is some quick points to help you settle your children in.
Upon arrival please sign your children into their age specific programme, at the back of the church auditorium.
Our children participate in the main service’s praise & worship before being dismissed to their classes. You are welcome to stay with your children.
After the service, your children can be picked up and signed out of their designated classrooms.

We encourage praise and worship in this class. It is our desire that the children learn foundational Bible Stories that show them that God loves them and that Jesus is their friend. A Simple morning tea is provided. (Please advise if your child has allergies when signing in).
Powerhouse years 3-5
The curriculum for Powerhouse is Xstream – Light Curriculum. This is a God-centred curriculum that shows children that they can have a relationship with God. The lessons are presented in a fun, interactive approach that often includes worship, a memory verse, an interactive object lesson, drama and an activity. It is our desire that every child develops their own personal relationship with the Lord.
RADs years 6-8
RADs (Radical Active Disciples) is held 3 out of 4 weeks, this is a vibrant class and provides an environment that encourages our pre-teens in the ways of God. We use The Grid – Light Curriculum from Scripture Union. Games, activities, bible stories and object lessons are a part of their lesson and are used to help encourage them in their own relationship with the Lord.
