Kid’s Church

Hi, my name is Sarah and I look after Kids Church! 

When you come to Kids’ Church, you can expect to sing, dance, hear from the bible, take part in some activities or craft and share a little bit of food.  Most of all, I hope you will leave with a greater knowledge of who Jesus is and how he wants to be a part of your life. The Kids (aged 3-11) meet during the Sunday morning 9.30 service for fun, fellowship and learning in a Christian environment.

Most recently in Kid’s Church we have been using the Jesus Storybook Bible to learn how Jesus has power over all things, such as when he calmed the storm or when he fed the 5000.  These miracles show us that Jesus is in control and we can trust him to be in control of our lives too.  We can trust God to be always with us – He has promised us!

These are our most recent memory verses:

With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26)
The Kingdom of heaven is like treasure (Matthew 13:44)

Mainly Music

St Aidan’s also runs Mainly Music, an outreach to pre-school children and their caregivers, through music and movement! We began our Mainly Music group at St Aidan’s in 2002. Currently, our music sessions are led by Glen (the priest in charge here at St Aidan’s) and I (Sarah) help to coordinate all the administration side of things.

The session involves 30 minutes of music and movement, which is followed by morning tea and play. Mums, Dads, Nannies, Nanas and Granddads as well as other family members enjoy participating, meeting and socialising with each other.

We meet on Wednesday mornings from 9:30am until 10:30am during term time. If you would like to come along and check out what happens here, our first session is free and then if you decide you’d like to join us the subsequent sessions are $4/family. We’re lucky enough to have a large church hall, so we don’t have a waiting list!

I’d love you to be a part of Kids Church and/or Mainly Music at St Aidan’s, so let’s keep in touch…send me an email at children@staidans.co.nz with your details and I can make sure you know what we’re up to! You are also welcome to call me on (09) 929 4670 ex 3.
