one2one Kids and Youth Crèche operates for children aged 1 - 3½ years. Glo-Group and Livewire Programs are for children 3½ to Year 8. They generally leave after the children’s talk.

School Holidays GloGroup and Livewire will be taking a break during school holidays (Sept. 22, 29 Oct 6). Holidays are a good time for families to come and do church together. It is important for children to experience Big Church and be included as vital and significant members of our church too. This can also assist with transitioning as children grow and move out of Children's Ministry. We will have some activities in the morning services to assist children and parents in the holidays. Activity packs are also available for children who prefer to stay and sit with their parents. If you would like to help or have some ideas, please talk with Melissa.

Creche Carers Needed Please see Melissa if you can help this vital ministry to our young children flourish. Girls Club - Woodwork Night Grade 3 - 6 Bring a Hammer Friday 18 October 7-8.30pm $4 Boys Club - AFL Night - Boys 3-6 Wear Sporting Clothes & Shoes 18/ October 7-8.30pm $4

Story of the Week Margaret is in her 70s and has been mentoring Sam for nearly 2 years. Margaret fell and broke her shoulder and was unable to attend her weekly mentoring sessions with Sam for quite a few weeks. When Margaret returned to the school to mentor Sam, his teacher came across the room and gave her the biggest hug saying, “How pleased I am to see you back at school. You have made such a wonderful difference in Sam's life”. If you or anyone you know would like to know more about becoming a mentor, please contact Church Office (5334 1882)
