We offer a weekly program that challenges Boys spiritually, physically, socially, and educationally. Our focus is on friendships, leadership, the self-discipline needed to achieve excellence and understanding the Christian faith. All Boys have the opportunity to earn awards, badges, and participate in leadership training, working towards their Queen's badge (the highest award a boy can receive).
Our company also participates in other activities such as camping and inter-company competitions.
Sunday School runs during school terms within our 9:30am Sunday Service and provides a time where children can share in fun, faith, friendships and learn about Jesus.
Our leaders provide a range of varying experiences to help children draw closer to God through music, bible teaching, prayer, games and creative activities. All our leaders are screened and trained and will love your kids almost as much as you do.
All children aged 3 - 12 are welcome and meet as one group in the Church Hall. A range of activities including games, craft, challenges and small group time are provided to enhance age- and developmental- appropriate learning and connection for all.
Children start each service in the Church Auditorium with the congregation for songs, prayers, videos, communion and announcements and will move to the hall with their leaders when advised. In 2019 we will be Digging into Discipleship and follow the same readings and themes as Sunday Worship, learning more about the heart of God, and how to follow him.
To enhance child learning and discipleship, weekly Dig In @ Home materials are available under the devotions tab above, and we encourage you to connect with and talk about life and faith with your children during the week.
To ensure that we can provide the best care for children in Sunday School, we ask that the enrolment form be completed the first time you attend Sunday School in each year. This can be found attached here, and will be available electronically on Sunday Mornings.
We look forward to "digging in' with your family soon.

An Explore Group is an intentional gathering of people who meet to study the bible and apply it to their daily lives and to pray for and support each other. As expressed in Acts 2:42 – 47, Explore Groups meet to develop authentic Christian Community. Explore Groups meet weekly or fortnightly.
Each Explore Group is unique. Each group will have a time of bible study and discussion, where the passage being studied is understood and applied in our contemporary setting. In addition there will be a time of prayer. There may also be times of sharing and eating. Each Explore Group works out together how they will spend their time.
Contact the church office and let us know that you want to be part of an Explore Group. We will arrange to connect you with a group that meets at a time that suits you.
