Children at St Mary’s
Children are welcome at all of our St Mary’s services. We have a special area in our church where parents can sit with their children whilst they play with quiet toys, and still be very much part of the body of the church.
God’s Gang is our Sunday School program, for children from 4 year old Kinder to Grade 6. Families join us for the start of our 10.30am service and after some songs, a prayer and sometimes a short kids’ talk, the kids head off with their God’s Gang teachers and helpers to our Parish House for their session.
A typical God’s gang session will include some singing, games, crafts and of course bible lessons and stories! Kids are collected by their parents from the Parish house when the service is finished.
We also have a crèche for children not yet at 4 year old Kinder.
Throughout the year, special ‘All In’ services are run in our Parish Hall by our minister, Kim Beales. These services are for all members of the family.
All of our God’s Gang teachers and Creche leaders have current Working with Children Checks, National Police Checks and are carefully screened.
Music Playtime meets each Thursday from 10.00am til 11:30am in the Hall. The hour incorporates actions, rhythm, singing and stories and open to anyone to come along. Gold coin donation.
