Who we are

Our children’s church is called Shine and it is for children from the age of 3 until the end of grade 7. We believe that church should be a safe, fun, welcoming place that children will want to return to again and again. We place a high value on building relationships – child to child, child to adult, and most importantly, with God. We want our children not just to know about God, but to build a relationship with Him. We want them to know that He is real and that He is with them and that He loves them. In all we do we aim to be show the children a Father who is involved in their lives. We want to see each child grow in all that God has for them, and become who God has created them to be.

What we do

We believe that children have the same Holy Spirit as adults do, so we do everything that would be done in an adult church, but with a lot more movement and noise.

We start the morning with a few games, we celebrate birthdays, and then we worship God together with music and dancing. We spend time talking to God and hearing Him talk to us. We share stories of what God has done for us and celebrate together. Preschool children have their own worship time with the same elements. After our time of worship we break into age groups.

Our Classes

We have four different classes that cater towards different age groups. All the lessons that we teach have been written by our children’s pastor.

Every lesson teaches the children about God but it also gives them an opportunity to connect with God in a real way. They are also encouraged to practice what they have learnt with a weekly challenge. An overview of the lesson is sent to parents each week.

Our Team

We have an amazing team of passionate adults and teens who are excited to teach our
children about who God is and how much He loves them.
