Kids at King's
From the new-born to the eldest church member, everyone belongs.
On Sundays, the children stay in with our church family for the time of worship and after tea and coffee they go off to their own activites. Our children's groups provide a secure and friendly environment in which children can grow and develop friendships with other children their own age.
Newborn to 3 years - There are toys for the babies and toddlers to enjoy. Feeding parents can also find privacy there. They meet in the classroom at the back right of the main auditorium. The room is adjacent to our next group up, Splash, so the older ones who are able to join in with the story and craft can move through when they are ready. Some weeks the two groups will be combined to start off the session with music and singing.
Splash is for those children who are able to sit and listen to a story and have fun with games and crafts. Usually aged 4 up to school year 2. This group provides a secure and friendly environment in which children can grow and develop friendships with their peers and have loads of fun learning bible stories. Activities include games and songs, prayer time and a selection of stories and craft times.
School Years 3-5. Our younger children in the church really look forward to moving up to Xtreme! Xtreme meet on a Sunday morning and also get to do social activities with the older age group Bridge. Our heart is to see each young person encounter God and embrace His calling on them; with a passion to live for Christ throughout their lives.
Bridge is for intermediate age children (school year 6 to 8). They meet on Sundays after the family time of worship for a time of discussion, challenges and prayer. They do social activites with such as ice skating, movie nights and trips to Hanmer. The older youth group, The King's Youth, invite them to some of their social activities too.
All children (up to Xtreme) are signed in and out of the groups as part of our Child Protection Policy. The leaders of the group will explain this to you as you arrive with your child. If you wish, you are very welcome to stay with your child in these groups.
