A parent led ministry for babies/toddlers through to 3 and a half years
HCC crèche is run for our babies and toddlers to create biblical foundations from a young age through free play, bible stories and Christian music. Crèche is run during service time by our parents on a rotating roster and allows us to all still worship together as a congregation.
JUNIOR SUNDAY SCHOOL
A fun interactive introduction to Bible stories for children aged 3 and a half to 6 years
Our aim is to teach Bible stories and truths in an exiting way, using many different techniques in order to help children learn. Using a Bible for Pre-schoolers, we cover a comprehensive range of Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments. We tell Bible stories using puppets, plays, reading, question time, and role play.
Our Sunday School time is structured with a welcome time, prayer, story, morning tea, craft activity, singing and games.
We encourage young children to want to know more about God, understanding that they can talk to Him through prayer and find out about Him in their Bible.
A programme catering for children aged 6 to 10 years
Our teachers are committed to teaching the truths of God's Word and applying these to the children by means of singing, Bible stories, follow-up activities, crafts and memory verse learning. Our program includes both whole group and small group activities.
Parents are welcome to stay, but are not required to do so.
WORD OF LIFE
A Bible study for Intermediate age children
Our aim is to encourage children to grow in God's Word and to honour Him in their lives. All children are encouraged to look deeper into God's Word through reading the Bible aloud and participating in group discussions and activities.
We cover topic such as creation, the life of Jesus, parables, prayer and Proverbs. Memorizing key Bible verses is always encouraged, as is children's participation in prayer at the end of each session.
