At The Salvation Army we have a diverse range of programs for children starting from birth to young adults to make a positive and lasting impact on children’s spiritual journeys.
Our playgroups are available for children and their carers aged 0-4 years. The children and their parents enjoy free play, songs, stories and craft activities. Morning tea is a part of the morning and parents are requested to bring $2 toward activities and a piece of fruit to share. Monday 9:30am to 11:30am
For children 3-12 years, meets concurrently with our adult worship service, where they experience age-relevant worship, craft, music and teaching to help them learn about God, the Bible and who Jesus is. There is no cost to attend Kids Church, however an offering is taken each week to help the children learn about giving. Sunday 10am - 11:30am
Junior Soldiers are young people aged 7-18 who have made a decision to be a follower of Jesus and who want to grow and express their faith through ministry within the Salvation Army. Junior Soldiers are therefore junior members of The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army takes seriously the capacity of children to have an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. This means children are just as capable to participate in the mission of God as adults. Local leaders in The Salvation Army nurture young people on their spiritual journey helping them to develop their faith, their understanding of God, the Bible and the teachings of Jesus and to equip them with skills and values for their everyday living including what they think, say, do and the decisions/choices that they make. Soldiers are challenged to think about the way that they engage with their community and also have the opportunity to participate in special projects that will make a difference in their local or global community.
