If you are a family with children between the ages of 3 to 16 you are in the right place! Here at Australind Baptist Church, we provide a kids program for our service on a Sunday, as well as mid week programs.
Australind Baptist has been blessed with many vibrant, energetic and enthusiastic children. With this brings a great responsibility for us as a church to help support the family raise their children in the knowledge and relationship with God. Kids Church is aimed at supplementing and reinforcing what is being modelled at home. Our Kids Church class names are based on the verse from Luke 24:32 which says:
‘They said to one another “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was speaking to us on the road, while he was explaining the Scriptures to us?”
The groups we run classes for are:
- Spark – ages 3 to Pre Primary
- Ignite – Years 1 to 3
- Flame – Years 4 to 7
Our hearts desire is that our kids in Kids Church hearts will burn within them as we bring the scriptures to them. It will start as a spark, ignite and grow to full flames as they become fully committed Christians on FIRE for God.
We’re sure that your children will love ABC Kids Church and we can’t wait to meet them. Our prayer is that Australind Baptist Church would be the kind of place you and your family will want to call home.
What happens at a Sunday Service
Children from year 8 and up are welcome to participate in our Kids Worship service if they choose, or join in with the main service for worship. If they join in with the Kids Worship service, afterwards they are invited to join the main service. There is no teaching program running on a Sunday for this age group.
Children from year 1 to 7 are encouraged to participate in our Kids Worship service which is held from 10:00-10:30am in a room in the primary school behind the basketball courts. They are then taken to their classes by their teachers.
Kids Worship gives the kids a chance to worship God, sing and praise God together, pray and collect offering for missions. It also gives the kids and teenagers a chance to serve and use their gifts.
Children under the age of 6 remain with their parents in the auditorium. At 10:30am the children aged 3 and above will go to their classrooms. Children below this age group have a room where they can play if they get noisy during the service.
