At strathfield 9am we love children to come and join us! One of our great aims is that our kids would hear about Jesus in a way that is fun and relevant. Our vision for children directly corresponds with the overall vision of the church, because we want to be a place where children encounter Jesus in teaching and in worship.
Our children’s programs are a safe and secure place where children are loved and accepted because of who God has made them and is making them to be. And most of all it is a place where kids’ have fun!
We know family plays the most important role in the discipleship of children, and we want to be a place where families learn, grow, and find encouragement. There are a wide variety of children’s programs available for families, including:
The Cry Room – Babies & Toddlers
For families with babies and toddlers who prefer to stay with their parents, there is a sound proof cry room at the back of the church hall. The room has a speaker to allow parents to listen into the service, a change table, a feeding room, and there are some toys for toddlers to to play with.
S9 Creche – Toddlers
For toddlers who are happy to leave their parents, there is a creche. At the creche they play, listen to a short story and have fun. Our creche begins downstairs at 8:55am and the parents/carers should take the children in personally to check-in and get a name tag.
Strathfield 9amites – Pre-school
For preschoolers there is the 9amites program where they get to enjoy learning about God and doing activities with their friends. Like the creche, 9amites begins downstairs at 8:55am and the parents/carers should take the children in personally to check-in and get a name tag.
8:45am & 10:30am Kid’s Alive – Primary
For kids in Kindergarten to Year 6 there is the Kid’s Alive Sunday School program held downstairs. The early session starts at 8:55am so you can drop your kids off downstairs and head upstairs for the 9am service. There is also a 10:30am program which is held after the service.
