Sunday Kids Programs:
Kids @ stm: All young people in years prep to 6 enjoy activities and games enabling them to make new friends and build deeper relationships. Music, games, teaching and age appropriate groups are all included to help children learn practical ways to apply the Bible to everyday life. Parents are welcome to be involved in this program in a variety of ways.
Sparklers: The Children’s Centre at 5 Church Street has a purpose designed room for children from 2 – 4 years old. Every Sunday of the school term a program is run, designed to introduce them to the love of God. The team who care for these children provide activities, games, stories and music that engage each of the little ones. A morning tea of fruit and water is also provided. Parents are welcome to be part of Sparklers at any time and parents of regular attendees are rostered on as parent helpers.
Sunday Kids programs are currently on a break over the school holiday period. Normal program resumes on the 22nd April.
When Sunday Kids and Sparklers are not running:
At St. Mark’s we love having our kids in services with us, and maintain an intergenerational approach to all combined services. We encourage parents and caregivers to participate in worship, with their children helping their kids understand what is going on and encouraging them to participate equally with the adults. Services are planned with these inclusive factors in mind, by providing interactive and creative responses in our times of ‘Worship Together’, and roles for our youth and kids to be involved within these services. We also encourage community building with other members of the congregation and wish to foster friendships across the generations.
