KIDSCONNECT (Families and Children)

Kids Connect is a place for children to grow like Jesus “…in wisdom, stature, and favour with God and man” (Luke 2:52). Young ones from creche through to intermediate school age can experience God’s love, learn to make wise choices and build good relationships. Our prayer is that they will begin and progress their own faith walk with God. They will be encouraged in their journey by gifted and caring children’s workers. We aim to support families in the challenge of raising children who can not only survive spiritually in a changing culture, but also be change agents in their culture!

10 am | Every Sunday Morning | Babies to Year 6

ECW STUDENT MINISTRY

A community of teenagers where all are welcome and accepted for who they are and can freely grow and express themselves while learning how to make good choices in life guided by teachings from the Bible. Exciting events like our annual Ignite Camp, trips and regular outreach activities, provide a safe place for teenagers to come. Our youth leadership team shares a passion to help young people connect with the faith community through authentic mentoring relationships and providing opportunities to grow a strong faith in Christ…all while having heaps of fun!

7-9pm | Every Friday Evening | YEAR 7 to YEAR 13

ECW YOUNG ADULTS (Ages 18+)

A group from Year 13 onwards (18+). We gather every Sunday evening from 5pm at the Church Centre. It is an important time of being together to share in meals, games, discussions, as well as reaching out to the wider Church and community in acts of service. Through these gatherings we build relationships while grappling with life issues together in a safe environment.
