Children

Ages 1 - 10

Welcome to our kids ministry

Children are God’s gift to us. Every child is unique and has their own destiny to follow. At Hope Kids we know the importance of this and our aim is to introduce them to Jesus and for them to develop a personal relationship with him. The goal of the program is to share the gospel with your children in a fun and relevant way, and to build a solid faith foundation that they can build upon as they get older. We aim to work in partnership with parents, teaching God’s word and values to each child.

Hope Kids

Hope Kids has 3 main groups that cater for a variety of ages.

PLEASE NOTE that the ages for each group are just a rough guide and we are happy to work with you, the parents to make sure your child is in the correct group based on their abilities.

Our aim is to make HopeKids a place where children learn about Christ through interaction by a variety of activities.  This includes a focus on child involved teaching time, memory verses, games and also a high importance on connecting with the children.  The goal of the program is to share the gospel with your children, and to build a solid foundation that they can build their faith into adulthood.  We aim to work in partnership with parents, teaching God’s word and values to each child.

Snacks

For both HopeToddlers and HopeKids programs we include a snack time – we ask that you bring a piece of fruit to share.

Allergies

To ensure your child’s safety, it is very important for you to let our leaders know if your child has any allergies or any other special needs or concerns. We will endeavour to bring the best care possible.
