During the Sunday service we often have a kid’s story related to the sermon / topic for the day where possible.  This is to engage the children during the first part of the service while they are still part of the main gathering.

During the sermon the kids attend “Kid’s Church” where they learn about God and Jesus through teaching, games and craft activities.
