Children and Families

Children & Families are important to us! Our mission is to resource and encourage children and families so they may grow together in Christ and live as Jesus’ followers in mission and ministry. We welcome children and their families to worship with us; we provide age-appropriate learning experiences on Sundays and we help families grow in faith together at home.

Curiosity Early Learning Centre

CURIOSITY Early Learning Centre is a place where our children and their families are, ‘Active, Connected and Growing for LIFE’. Our Early Learning Centre environments and projects are designed to promote each child’s curiosities and wonders in an inclusive space where they are supported to become confident, independent and active problem solvers with the understanding that they are valued contributors to society.

Faith At Home

We want to help provide families with resources, ideas and encouragement so your whole family can learn together and share your spiritual learning journey. We have a library at church, Bible Activity Kits and occasionally we provide special resources to encourage you to nurture faith in your home.
