We understand that as parents you desire to see your children become connected with other children their age and to feel valued. As a church community, we appreciate this and have created a diverse range of programs for children starting from birth to young adults, where your children can participate in valuable activities. Each of our programs has a dedicated team of leaders who have a passion for children’s ministries. Please view the selection of programs below.
A program for pre-school children and parent or caregiver, designed to provide an environment where they can develop skills to enhance their education through music, rhythm, rhyme, movement and listening. Weekly sessions, during the school year, are full of fun, educational music and musical activity to grow and develop your child, followed by something to eat and something to play with, plus time for you to eat and chat with other parents!

Junior soldiers is a discipleship class for young people aged 7–18 where they learn about Christian living and the work and mission of The Salvation Army. Junior Soldiers have decided 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. Local leaders nurture young people on their spiritual journey to equip them with skills and values for their everyday living. 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.
