Children & Families
Children’s church is the place to be on Sunday mornings! It meets during the 9.30 service at St Saviour’s and the 11.15 service at St Paul’s, usually on the second, third and fourth Sunday of each month. Aimed at primary and secondary school children up to School Year 9, it provides a fun, safe and loving environment through which we
hope to ignite their passion for Jesus. With games, worship and teaching, we help children learn about God’s love and grace, reflect on it in their own lives, and grow in faith.

Messy Church is a unique way of being church for families and others who want to experience something different. This Christ-centred ministry takes place on the last Sunday of every month from 3pm-4:30pm and is suitable for primary school-aged children. Messy Church is based on creativity, hospitality, and celebration, providing a fun and welcoming environment where everyone can come together to learn and grow in their faith. The activities include arts and crafts, games, singing, Bible stories, and delicious snacks. It’s a great way to bring the whole family together and explore the teachings of Jesus in a new and engaging way. (No Messy Church in August or December)
