Children and Youth
We are thrilled to provide a Sunday program at St John's for children from five years old to youth in year 12.
Our programs run within our 9.30 service where the children and youth start in the service and return for communion before the service ends.
Occasionally we all stay in church for a service where the children and particularly youth can engage directly in the readings, intercessions and service elements.
We maintain a safe, and well-supervised environment for our children and youth to thrive and explore the Christian faith. Our volunteers and staff are trained and compliant with safe ministry practices.
Every year we start Term One with something special! Our year of teaching begins with some fun games and activities (and usually lots of food).
To celebrate Jesus' resurrection, kids and youth gather after the main service for a very exciting egg hunt through our historic graveyard.
Christmas Eve Pageant and Carols on the Lawn
On Christmas Eve, many people set up a picnic rug on our grounds as the children dress up in costumes and join in telling the story of Jesus' birth - with the help of some favourite Christmas carols.
