WELCOME TO CONNECT KIDS
We as a church love and value children. We see the power of raising children who know and love God and we want to support families in this exciting adventure. We do not see ourselves as a replacement to a parent’s input in the child’s life, but rather provide Christian community, good role models and Godly influence through our programmes, teaching, relationship and worship.
WHERE WE MEET ON SUNDAYS
The 10am Meadowridge meeting (at 136 Ladies Mile Road) is a vibrant, contemporary service that is 100% family oriented, with Youth Church and Kids Church running simultaneously to the main service. We meet around the Bible, learning valuable lessons from God’s word. We sing, enjoy community and have fun doing this!
NEW TO THE CHURCH?
If you are joining us for the first time then please come say hello at the info desk. It is the big hall as you walk in to the courtyard. If you are just visiting, we will give your child a sticker with their name and your emergency contact number on. If you are wanting to come every week, then kindly complete an information card.
HOW CAN YOUR KIDS CONNECT
Pre-school to Grade 5 follow the same syllabus with the level being adjusted for the various age groups.
Our “Little Stars” spend the morning in one of the pre-school venues at the church, where they have access to a sandpit and large jungle gym, swings, etc. The venue is secure. The morning consists of free play, a Bible story, singing and craft time. We follow The Gospel Project curriculum. There are two adults on duty each week, as well as young adult helper. Moms and dads are most welcome to stay with little ones who are reluctant to be left on their own.
This group is fondly known as the “Little Champs.” These little ones have access to a secure, shaded play area with a jungle gym . As the children arrive, they enjoy a time of free play, either outside or on the mat. Mat time includes hearing a Bible story, singing songs and praying. We follow The Gospel Project curriculum. Thereafter they are given activities and crafts to do, which they are encouraged to take home. There are two adult teachers there each week, as well as an additional helper.
