Kids and Families

Helping families find and follow Jesus!

Kia ora koutou. We welcome you and your family!

We are passionate about seeing parents grow an everyday thriving faith together with their kids. We believe that having a relationship with Jesus is the greatest thing ever, and that we can all help each other on that journey.

 

As a church whānau, we are committed to supporting both parents and children to grow, through our Sunday morning Tupu Kids’ programmes, small groups, events, parent discussion groups, workshops, closed Facebook page, resources and much more. So don’t waste any time in coming along and being a part of our Church whanau and Tupu Kids! We would love to have your whole family join us! It takes a village to grow a child and grow a parent!

Our programmes

Tupu kids—grow kids


Our Tupu Kids’ programmes are fun, safe, interactive environments that encourage children to explore God’s Word for themselves, and what it means to love and follow Jesus. We base our sessions on the Bible and seek to nurture a growing relationship with Jesus, acknowledging that we are all part of God’s big story. Our kids’ programmes run during term time with a fantastic team of leaders and helpers. These programmes start approximately 20-30 minutes into the service. Coming along regularly allows your child to develop a sense of belonging and helps them to grow much needed relationships with both adults and children, as well as with God. Please note all children aged 3 months to 5 years need to be signed in by a parent at our Tupu Welcome Desk. All children aged 6 years need to sign themselves in every week (it can also be done before church starts). All children need to be registered by a parent each year. Thanks!
