We have an active children’s programme at two services; 9am service at All Saint’s Church in Belmont and 10am service at St James’ Church, Lower Hutt. During the service children participate in activities designed for primary school aged and preschool children. Godly play is available at our 10am service at St James’ Church. Godly Play helps children explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play.
Each week the children’s ministry is run by several volunteer adults and adolescents. Adult volunteers have passed Police vetting. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend with their children. Permission is sought before photos of children are published.
The programme continues during school holidays, except during the Christmas break.
The children’s ministry programme is co-ordinated by Averill
