MacKids on Sunday morning, during the 10:30am service, is a time where children can discover and learn about God in a great fun & age appropriate way. We use good quality Australian-written resources to teach from, which allow our children to interact with many biblical themes, bible characters, as well as topical issues from a Christian framework.
The Primary aged children also spend some time focusing on learning about and reaching out to others who are less fortunate than themselves. For example, we provide opportunities for group projects such as raising money to send Bibles to China & Africa through the Bible Society.
In 2020/2021 due to COVID-19 regulations, our groups are meeting in new and varied ways. Please contact our Children’s Pastor, Juli Secker for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our MacKids groups are:
Small Fry is for 2 – 3½ year olds.
Mini-Macs is for children 3½ – 5 years old.
MacReals is for Kindy & Yr 1
Macquarium is for Primary kids in Years 2 – 4. It meets in the Big Hall.
Yr 5 – 6 Bible Study Group
Our year 5-6 Bible Study is a Bible study that runs during the Sunday School period of our 10.30am Family Service. The aim of our 5-6 Bible study is to help kids transition between our Sunday School program, MacKids (for years K-4), to our Youth Bible study (for years 7-10). The purpose of this 5-6 Bible study is to provide a more holistic understanding of the story of the Bible and how our year 5s and 6s fit in to it, as well as to equip them in their faith as they begin to make the transition from primary school to high school.
Youth Bible Study Group
This group started meeting in Feb 2021 & meet fortnightly on the 2nd & 4th Sunday’s whilst the 10.30am service happens.
The purpose of this time is to provide our youth with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Bible, their faith and how it interacts with the world they find themselves in. Ultimately, this group seeks equip young people as they journey through the adolescent years of early high school.
On the other Sunday mornings our teenagers are invited and encouraged to be involved in other aspects of church life, such as worship team, welcoming, sound/tech crew, kids ministry helpers etc.
