Kid’s Church (Kindy - Year 6)

Kids at St Matts love Kid’s Church. It’s a time to play games, sing, create things and learn about God’s love for them, through the Bible.

We want children to experience church, God’s family gathered together, so the children join their parents for the first 15 minutes of the service for singing and a short Kid’s Spot, before heading off to Kid’s Church.
