KIDS AND YOUTH
To follow social isolation guidelines, we have temporarily changed the nature of our kids ministries at St Paul’s. For more information, visit the relevant age group below.
UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Kids Church has been postponed until further notice to protect the health of our church members and the wider community. We will be providing online resources and sessions for each age group along with our online Sunday services.
At St Paul’s Anglican, we value kids! And we want them to know and experience for themselves the hope that Jesus offers them.
Our kids ministry team is committed to teaching children about Jesus in the best way possible. We are also passionate about helping families raise kids who love Jesus so that He is a part of their lives all the time – not just on Sundays.
We run four kids’ programs during Morning Church, North Rocks Church and Chinese Church:
Creche (0-3 years old)
Munchkins (4-5 years old)
Beagles (Kindergarten to Year 2)
Fireworks (Years 3 to 6)
We train all of our volunteer kids’ leaders, and have a Parents Committee which supports our teams. Read more about our Safe Ministry practices.
SALT Youth Group
UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, instead of meeting together physically, St Paul’s will be running Youth Hour from 7:30-8:30pm every Friday night during the school term for high-schoolers. We have briefed our leaders about safe ministry measures and are putting precautions in place to ensure Youth Hour is a safe place for kids. For more information, please get in touch.
Join us at SALT: a youth group where high schoolers can make friends, belong, have fun and learn about Jesus in a warm, safe and relaxed environment.
We meet on Friday nights during the school term from 7:15-9:30pm, with additional Growth Groups for Years 7 and 8 on Sunday morning, and years 9 to 12 on Sunday afternoon. Once a year we go away for Awesome: a youth camp where we spend a week hanging out together, learning from the Bible and having fun.
Ignite Kids Club
UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Ignite will be running 30-minute online sessions at 6pm on Fridays via Zoom. We have considered the advice of the Safe Ministry providers in the context of online ministry. As such, there will always be two leaders per breakout room and sessions will be recorded. For more information, please get in touch.
Ignite is a super fun, jam packed Friday evening club for primary-aged kids (years 3 to 6 at school). We learn about Jesus, sing songs, play games and have lots of fun together.
Everyone is welcome, and we encourage the kids who attend to bring their friends along too! We meet from 6 – 7:10pm at church, with a $2 cost for the evening.
UPDATE: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Playcircle has been postponed until further notice to protect the health of our church members and the wider community.
Playcircle is an informal group where carers and their children (aged 0-5 years old) can meet and play in a relaxed environment. Each session usually includes play time, singing, morning tea, craft and a story.
We run 2 Playcircle groups for carers and their children during the school term:
Mondays, 10-11:30am at St Paul’s Anglican
Chinese Language Playcircle
Thursdays, 10-12pm at St Paul’s Anglican
