At NewHope Kids our passion is to see kids encounter Jesus today and walk with Him tomorrow.
We love partnering with families as the key spiritual nurturers of their children and building life-giving relationships through Bible teaching, worship, prayer, small group time and fun.
Our Kids Church services run in line with the morning adult gatherings each Sunday at 9am and 11am through the school terms. We have age appropriate programs for children from 1 years to grade 6.
Kids Church is fun, free and everyone is invited! If you are coming along for the first time please fill out the registration form found below to help us prepare for your visit.
What do you believe?
We value children and believe that no one is too young to have a genuine relationship with Jesus. At NewHope Kids our vision is to see children encounter Jesus today and walk with him tomorrow. We acknowledge parents as the key spiritual nurturers of their children and desire to partner with you.
Can parents stay?
Of course! Parents are always welcome at any of the Kids Church services. Come and join in the fun!
What about allergies?
We ask that you inform us of any allergies or medical needs when you first register your child for NewHope Kids. This information will be passes along to leaders and displayed on the child’s name tag.
We give lolly prizes for games and occasionally have food as part of our program. We will always put up signs and inform you via termly newsletters when this is planned.
Are children with special needs welcome at NewHope?
Yes! We believe that all children are made in the image of God and deeply loved by him. We desire to create inclusive environments where all children feel a sense of belonging, love and support. To do this, we ask for your help.
We know that parents are the experts when it comes to their kids and that every child is unique. We would love to meet with you and hear how we can provide the very best care.
Who is looking after my child?
