COLLEGE CHURCH KIDS
We want kids to know Jesus, grow in Jesus, and show Jesus to others!
At College Church we partner with parents and teach kids about Jesus at a level they understand. We want children to experience the unconditional love of Jesus and learn how to share this love with others through service. We do this through helping children discover their God-given potential, apply God’s Word in their daily lives, and serve others in their church and community. Bring your kids (Beginners through to Juniors) to our gated children’s area where programs commence at 9:40am. You are invited to drop off your kids and join an adult small group, or just have a hot drink with friends.
We’re always looking for leaders & assistants. If you’re interested in being involved in Kids Sabbath School Groups, you can sign up below. You’ll need to complete a Working With Children Check prior to volunteering in the kids area. You can do this online at www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au

Our Children’s Ministries program is created in a way that will engage your child at their level.
Our BEGINNERS group teaches the little ones—kids aged 0 to 3 years old. With the help of parents, children in Beginners engage in an interactive program of creative story telling and music.
PRESCHOOL is aimed at kids aged 3 years old to Kindergarten. This group focuses on interactive Bible lessons about grace, worship, love, and service.
PRIMARY engages school-aged children in grades 1 to 3. This is an interactive Bible study focusing on service, God’s love for us, and joyful worship.
The JUNIOR group is for school-aged kids in Grades 4 to 6. In Junior we study the Bible, and encourage children to embrace and develop a relationship with Jesus, along with a passion for service.
Highschoolers are welcome to join our Early Teen and Teen groups located outside the Children’s Ministries area.
We encourage parents and other family members at College Church to get involved. There are many opportunities to serve including, but not limited to, the Children’s Ministries Area. Kids love to have their parents assisting in their group activities. If you’d like to help out in one of our kids groups please let us know!
