Kids and Pre-Teens Ministries
Children are an important part of Mona Vale Anglican Church. In Mark 10:13-16 we see how Jesus welcomed little children and blessed them because he knows they are special to God, their heavenly Father. We want children who come along to Mona Vale Anglican to be blessed by Jesus through following him as his young disciples. We see our goal as a church to partner with the care-givers of these children so that we can work together to raise them as godly Christian people. Leaders who help with the children's programs are required to complete training in Safe Ministry as well as having a Working With Children Check, as part of our commitment to provide a safe environment for the learning and growth of the children God entrusts to our care.
Sunday Kids @ 10 - Update for Term 4, 2020 - We are back face to face!!!!
Our pre-teen program is called Soul Patrol aimed at years 5-7 students will be back next year! In the meantime you might like to check up the Neon Youth Group on a Friday night during school term.
We love including kids in our 10am congregation on Sundays. We have a range of different programs to cater for kids of all ages. During the first part of the service we encourage all kids to sit in with their family. We usually have kid's talk or skit which relates to the Bible series being taught for the term and then the kids will head out for their various groups and activities. We run a crèche called Quest Explorers for infants aged under 3, and a program known as Quest Kids for children in preschool to year 4.
In Quest Kids we sing, play games, pray, memorise verses from the Bible and do craft, which all link back to the Bible passage that is read and discussed in their smaller groups. We finish with a light lunch of sandwiches and fruit, and sometimes cake if there is a birthday to celebrate!
