Kids Church

Kids are a really important part of our church—and we want them to know it!
Therefore we provide various programs to make sure that kids are taught the wonderful truths about Jesus in an age-appropriate way.


Our Sunday services begin with everyone together in the main hall. 

After some prayer, kids drama and singing in 'big church' the kids get to go out to their different age-based 'churches'. 
The different age groups are as follows:


PRE-SCHOOL: 0-3.5 year olds


PRE-SCHOOL: 3.5-5 year olds


KIDS CHURCH: Kindy - Year 1


KIDS CHURCH: Year 2 - Year 3


KIDS CHURCH: Year 4 - Year 5


YOUTH CHURCH: Year 6 - Year 8


it's a mass exodus!


Sunday morning programs include Bible teaching, singing, Bible memorisation as well as different crafts, games and activities.


In each of these classrooms, Jesus is taught and modelled by capable and trained leaders. All leaders and helpers have completed Safe Ministry Training and comply with Australian child safety regulations, including an approved and current Working With Children Check (WWCC).

 

We offer Kids Church at Sunday morning services only, but families are very welcome at both services.


Please contact our Kids pastor, John Hanlen (jhanlen@tpcc.org.au) if you have any questions or require more information.

Junior Jivers

Junior Jivers is a half hour music and movement group for children under 5.
The group runs every Friday from 9:30am during public school terms. It’s a fun session that includes singing, playing instruments, movement, dancing and stories (including simple bible stories). Mums, Dads and Grandparents join in with their children, providing a great opportunity to enjoy singing and jiving together.  


Junior Jivers meets in the Emerald Downs Community Centre (Suite 1, 100 Ocean Drive Port Macquarie)


Cost is $2 per week. You are also welcome to pay for a whole term up front for $20. This money helps to cover the cost of music, materials and equipment used in the group.


Junior Jivers is run by volunteers and is proudly supported by The Point Community Church.
