During each Sunday service, we invite our kids to go to Lakes Kids (Junior & Primary) during the message. Here kids learn about Jesus and faith in exciting and creative ways through stories, songs, games and small group time. Parents sign your kids in at the Kids Hall and sign them out afterwards. In the school holidays there’s activities for the kids during the church services.
Lakes Kids (Junior) – 18 months up to Prep
Lakes Kids (Junior) is our program for the youngest children. They learn about God and come away with songs, stories and crafts. We do our best to help them feel safe and have fun. Parents are always welcome to stay with their child until they are settled.
Lakes Kids (Primary) – Prep to Grade 6
Lakes Kids (Primary) is our program for primary school children. They have a time of singing and worship, stories and teaching from the Bible, games and activities that help them understand Biblical principles, and time in small groups each week. It’s a fun way for the kids to hang out with their friends, connect with one another and grown in faith together!
