We welcome all children and families of all shapes, sizes, and make. We strive to be a place where all can come to learn about Jesus Christ and develop a personal relationship with our Lord.
Children all learn differently and interact with God differently. Our goal is to create authentic connections for children to experience and grow in their faith with God. We take care to ensure our program contain multiple teaching strategies and activities. Our programs are fun, interactive and meaningful.
Junior Church runs every Sunday during the 10am service. Kid's have a time exploring the Gospel and the liturgy of the day together in a way which is more informal and relaxed, and includes some games, activities and songs. Kids then join the rest of the congregation and worship together as well as sharing what they have learned with them.
