Children – Strathfield

Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven

Matthew 19:14

Families with children are warmly welcomed to join us! We believe children should be loved and accepted because of who God has made them and is making them be. Family plays an important role in helping children grow up in Christ, and we seek to support parents and children on this journey together.

Our children’s programs are where children can enjoy learning, growing and finding encouragement through exploring the Bible and discovering the truth about Jesus in a safe, fun and supportive place.

Check out our various children’s programs available in Strathfield campus of WSCCC below.

Babies & Toddlers - Cry Room

For the English 9am and Cantonese 10:30am Sunday services, there is a soundproof cry room at the back of the upstairs hall which is available for families with babies and toddlers who prefer to stay with their parents. The room has a speaker to allow parents to listen to the service, a changing table, a feeding room, and some toys for toddlers to play with.

Toddlers & preschoolers who are happy to leave their parents in the English 9am service, we run a crèche (toddlers) & the 9amites (preschooler) program where they sing, play, listen to Bible stories and have fun. Our crèche and 9amites begin downstairs at 8:55 am and the parents / carers should take the children in personally to check-in and get a name tag.

Light morning tea is provided in class after the lesson. For children who are not yet ready to separate from parents, feel free to stay with your children.
