Sunday School | 9:00am Sunday
Our 9am Sunday School is offered for school-ready children from the start of the service. Age-appropriate classes are held upstairs in the Sunday School room in the church hall, and include lessons that follow our current sermon series. The children return to the church in time for Holy Communion with their families. Resources and toys are always available at the back of the church for younger children, and children and babies of all ages are always welcome at St John’s.
Kids’ Church | 5:00pm Sunday
Although the 5pm Kids’ Church is offered in the church hall during the sermon, the fun for the children starts at the beginning of the service with a Kids’ Spot, led by our Youth Minister, Lyndsey McKenzie. The children at 5pm are encouraged to take part in the service itself, and often help with singing at the front of church. Kids’ Church starts in the hall after the opening worship time; games and activities, Bible stories, and interactive discussion stimulate their exploration of the Bible and Christian issues.

St John’s is committed to the highest standards of care & safety in our programmes for children and youth. All adult staff and volunteers in these programmes have a Working With Children Check as required by law. Additionally, they must also complete ‘Safe Ministry Training’ and have a refresher every 3 years. The church has a Safe Ministry Representative who monitors the currency and record-keeping for these accreditations.
