Our kids are precious to God and a really important part of our church!

As a congregation of Christ Church St Ives, we have an extensive kid’s program designed to teach them about Jesus in a way that’s fun and creative, led by members of Family Church and the Cowan Rd congregations.

As part of our Kids program, there are many opportunities for children, ranging from Toddlers to Year 5, and their families to grow in their love and knowledge of Christ, make friends and have fun. The same goes for our Youth program, which runs for Years 6 to Year 12.

All those involved in leading, teaching and caring for children and youth are well-trained, have completed the Safe Ministry Training required as part of the Anglican Diocesan Safe Ministry Ordinance Safe within the past three years and have current Working With Children Checks verified by Christ Church St Ives.

Kids Church | Toddlers to Year 5

Sunday morning begins with everyone together in the hall. After some singing and a Kid’s Spot the children head off to their various groups:

Twinklers | 0-3 year olds

Comets | Pre-School for 3-5 year olds

Asteroids | Years K-2

Orbit | Years 3-5

KidSpace | Years 3-5

On Friday nights during term time, all children in Years 3-5 are invited to meet for our kids club – a time of fun and learning from the Bible with friends from 4pm until 5.30pm in the Upper Hall in the main church building at 1 Cowan Rd, St Ives.
