Our kids go to the hall for Lakes Kids on Sunday mornings while teenagers and adults are in the auditorium. At Lakes Kids our kids learn about Jesus and faith in exciting and creative ways through stories, songs, communion, games and small group time. They will also enjoy some light refreshments together. When you arrive on a Sunday morning you can check your kids into Lakes Kids and then collect them again after the service.
To save time when you bring your kids to a program for the first time, you can fill in a family registration form here.
At Easter and Christmas we have activities for kids to do while they stay with their family in the auditorium for these special services.
Lakes Kids Junior – 2 years old to Kindy
The Junior room is 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
The Primary room is for primary school children. They sing and worship, share in communion to remember Jesus, have stories and teaching from the Bible, games and activities, and time in small groups each week. It’s a fun way for kids to hang out with their friends, connect with one another and grow in faith together!

We partner with a number of local churches and SU QLD to support and send our kids to camps. To find out more about SU and the camps that are happening soon see the SU QLD camps website.
Many of our teenagers serve as Junior Leaders in these programs or in other ways around the church. We love our Junior Leaders! They are outstanding young men and women who serve and lead in kids ministries, music, speaking & production.
We value children, and we want to protect them as they grow in life and faith. Our Safe People, Places & Programs policy outlines the steps we take as part of our commitment to their safety.
