Welcome to Go Kids
Our Vision: Belonging, Growing and Going in God
Our heart is for your children to know and experience that they are loved and belong to God, are equipped in the faith to grow, and go with Jesus wherever He may lead.
This can only happen in partnership with you, our families and through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and His leading. We are excited to see what God will do with this generation of believers!
What happens In Go Kids?
Arriving at a new church with the family can be both exciting and daunting. That’s why we intend to make it as easy as possible!
We want your children to feel welcomed while allowing time and space for them to settle in.
All new families are welcomed by our Children’s Pastor Narelle and visiting children receive a Go Kids gift bag. We suggest that children arrive at 8.45am to allow plenty of time for them to meet their teachers and new friends.
Our 90-minute Children’s Church program begins with Praise and worship, when the children sing and dance or quietly lift up their hearts to the Lord. Our prayer time is open for all children to have an opportunity to pray aloud or ask for prayer. There is also a lively drama /science object lesson section when we introduce the day’s lesson and scripture passage.
Next the children separate into their age-appropriate groups for a variety of interactive hands-on activities such as bible study or a bible science activity or art and craft.
Our final large group segment is full of chatter as the children return! We often sing another praise song, practice our memory verse, and play a game or two before being released to their parents.
What Are We Teaching?
Our curriculum is Bible based, Australian and created in house to remain organic & culturally relevant to the local family.
This year we are Bible Detectives! We have several exciting cases to solve including “The Jesus Man Mystery!” Each case is based on a selection of different scripture verses which will prove what really happened!
Portfolios - As part of our curriculum, every child receives a blank Portfolio at the start of the year. Each Sunday we will fill their portfolios with photos of your child, scriptures and completed art and craft. Parents and children will receive their completed portfolios at the end of the year. It is a great keepsake to look back on and review their growth in God!
What’s my child's Go Group
Early Childhood Department
Zoomers: 2-3yrs old. We provide bible -based play activities and fun sensory experiences for our youngest Zoomers! These little ones need to be nurtured in a loving and safe environment, to grow with a strong sense of belonging to God, their families, and their church family.
Spark: Prep-Grades1/2. This age group are full of curiosity and confidence! They soak up everything about God, love Bible stories and often keen to lead prayer time! We provide plenty of hands -on activities and art & craft to support their learning.
Teacher: Zoomers & Spark are currently taught together and led by Ps. Narelle.
Fusion (Grades 2/3-6)
Pre-teens are thinking about deeper issues of faith. Our aim is to give them opportunities to explore the big questions and real-life issues they face daily through discussions, interactive activities and games. Our Grade 6 students may take the opportunity to train as Junior Leaders and serve on the roster in the Go Kids class.
Teachers: Mr Daniel Larson; Ps Cil de Vries.
How do we look out for YOU?
We believe that the Go Kids Ministry serves the whole family. We want to ensure that you are comfortable with our team and your child feels safe. Each family will receive a Registration Pack to be completed by the primary caregivers. All information remains confidential.
All our teachers have current Blue Cards and receive local online Child Safe Training. Each child will be signed in before church by parents or nominated caregiver and signed out before release to the nominated person.
