Young People's Church (YPC)
Babies to Grade 7
Children are a blessing and a gift from the LORD (Psalm 127:3)
Our Young People’s Church (YPC) runs on Sunday mornings during the 8:30am service in the hall and various classrooms.
As a Church we feel that it is important for us to worship together as a family. For this reason, we will be changing the structure of Young People’s Church.
The Young People will begin the 8:30am service in church with their families, grandparents, guardians or a responsible adult. This is to encourage families to worship together and to help our children and young people grow to become familiar with and appreciate worship services in church.
If young children don't know the words to songs, do feel free to get them a flag to wave, and people are also free to use the aisles, back and front areas of the church for movement in worship times.
After the confession, the children and young people in the Bible class will leave and go into the Hall, pre-school classrooms and Youth House for their age-appropriate lessons. They will remain there till the end of the service.
Should you especially want your child to receive communion every week, please collect your child before the communion prayer of thanksgiving begins so that your child can join with you for the whole of the act of communion.
It is our intention that all children and young people will be at communion once a month at the All Age Worship services.
Our young people are divided into various age appropriate groups:
Our prayer is that all our young people will be given an opportunity to discover Jesus and know his presence in their lives.
Smarties meet in the hall on Fridays from 5:00-6:45pm for games, lessons & crafts as they learn more about God.
Seekers meet in the Youth House on Fridays from 5:00-6:45pm for Bible-based lessons & games.
We love Jesus. We love life. We love to have fun. Put this altogether and you have our awesome experience on Friday nights! From 7:30-9:30pm come meet new and old friends. Come and listen to good music and enjoy whacky fun! And we leave you with a thought about Jesus, our incredible friend and Saviour.
Dive in deeper with us as we explore and discuss God’s word: (the bible). We also watch our famous “clip of the week” and have hot chocolate (other hot drinks) and real Oros! (How cool are we?). Discussions and thoughtful DVDs… To grow deeper in your faith come join us in the Youth House on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm.
If you find yourself out of school or in the twenty something age gap and want a place where you can connect with other students, learn about how incredible Jesus really is, eat some tasty biscuits and laugh at bizarre jokes, then this is the place for you to be on Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00pm (Vicky’s place – 9 Regent Place).
age 18-30 something
We believe that Jesus is about so much more than just our church attendance and Bible reading. He is about life and giving it to us in the full. We watch movies together, chill at the pub, go watch soccer (and other sports); have breakfast together and other cool activities and shenanigans!
Mum's & Children
We are an informal group of mums with babies and young children. Some of us are stay at home mums, some of us have flexible work. We meet alternative weeks for bible study mornings (bring your Bible, note book and babies) and afternoons for tea, chat and fun with older kids too.
We hope to be a support to each other, pray and encourage.
