Creche is for ages 0-3. Kids are signed in and monitored by screened volunteers. We message parents if the kids are very upset or need changing / the toilet. They play with toys, read books and the 3-years olds do a simple Bible lesson and craft.
Crossroads kids is for ages 4-10. We are currently following the Kidswise program. Crafts, games and other noisy activities help with application and remembering the important bits (chances are you’ll hear the kids from the main hall during the sermon).
KidsZone is our Friday afternoon ministry for children in grades 3-5. KidsZone runs from 4:00pm to 5:30pm and includes a bible stories, songs, games, food and heaps of fun!
Our youth community called XYZ. XYZ meets on Friday nights during school term from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at St Georges Anglican Church Hall in Battery Point. A normal night of XYZ involves hearing a talk from the bible, discussing it in groups, enjoying organised activities, and hanging out together.
We take seriously our responsibility to keep kids safe and are careful to comply with all government, church, and Biblical requirements. All our volunteers obtain blue-cards before commencing work with children. We also maintain our volunteers’ membership in the Presbyterian church of Australia’s own kid-safe program: Breaking the silence. As well as teaching and training, this program outlines codes of conduct for teaching, leading, and provides clear authority structures and reporting procedures.
