Grace Kids is a fun, safe place for kids to discover the adventure of following Jesus. We use creative, relevant, and age-appropriate Bible teaching, high-energy worship, and dedicated small group leaders to ensure kids enjoy 'THE GREATEST HOUR OF THE WEEK!'

That's why we intentionally partner with parents and families to help kids discover and develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus. 

Grace Kids runs every Sunday during all our services 8:15 | 10am | 5:30pm*All children are signed in and out of Grace Kids on a Sunday by their parents and are allocated a unique number. In the event that a parent needs to be contacted during a service, your child's number will appear on the screen in the main auditorium. For parents of infants age 0-12 months, our auditorium is equipped with a Parents Room with a glass window so parents can see and hear the service. Otherwise, check out what's available for every age up to Grade 6.

This facility is staffed by dedicated volunteers, who will care for your little one with their safety being our priority.*

Pre-Primary: Gr 00-R

Our preschoolers enjoy a structured time of worship and story time followed by a fun activity to reinforce what they have learned. The focus in this age group is 'God made me, God loves me, and Jesus whats to be my friend forever.'

Primary: Gr 1-6

Our primary school children get together for high-energy, action-packed worship and creative, relevant teaching time. This is followed by age-appropriate small group time that reinforces the lesson led by our amazing Grace Kids volunteers.
