Coming to Kids' Church?

We believe that kids are a valuable part of our church family here at St Thomas’. We want them to know and experience for themselves the love and hope that is in Christ. Therefore, we are committed to teaching them about Jesus each week and seeing them grow to love Jesus as a part of their everyday lives, not just here on a Sunday. 


When we meet together at church, the kids have a great time reading the Bible, learning about Jesus, playing games and hanging out with friends. Come along and check it out, we’d love to meet you! Below is a snapshot of timings for kids’ church at our 10am service on Sundays.



10am: Both kids and adults start in the main church building where we sing together and have a short kids talk with Grunch the puppet.

10.15am: The children walk over with their leaders to their various places. There are bible talks and discussions, games, toys and crafts too.

11.15am: After the main church service is finished, kids get picked up by their parents from their various places. Please feel free to stick around for morning tea afterwards!

Safe Ministry

Here at St Thomas’ we are committed to protecting and promoting the safety and welfare of all people – especially those within our own church community. To ensure that we offer the best possible care at Kids’ Church, we adhere to the Safe Ministry requirements of the Anglican Diocese. As well as up to date safe ministry checks, all of our leaders who are over 18 have a Working with Children Check and some are also First Aid trained. We follow the safe ministry supervision ratio of 1:5 for preschoolers (one leader for every five children) and 1:7 for primary aged kids.
Please email Sarah Greenaway, our Safe Ministry representative, if you have any concerns at [email protected]
