What an awesome place for kids!
Destiny Kids is a safe, fun and friendly kids church for all kids from walking 1-year-olds right through to the end of Grade 6.
Each week our leaders provide age-appropriate lessons, games, and activities to help kids learn about God, understand the Bible, and develop their own personal relationship with Jesus.
Sign-in opens at 9:15am and sign-out is straight after the service.
Destiny Kids age groups
Spark – Ages 1 year old and walking -3 years
Ignite – Ages 4 years – Prep
Lift – Grade 1 – grade 6
Spark (1 year old and walking – 3 years)
Spark is a room just for little ones and is an introduction to kids church. We play, sing songs, have morning tea, read a Bible story, do a colouring page or craft activity, and then we play some more!
Our Spark leaders are experienced in providing loving care for toddlers and helping with the transition into kids church. We know that leaving Mum or Dad and coming into kids church can be a big step for some children (and parents!) so we work with families to make this as easy as possible. Parents are welcome to come in and settle their children for as long as needed, and we contact parents if a child is upset or needs a nappy change/toilet trip.
Ignite (Ages 4 years – Prep)
Our Ignite kids enjoy being “big kids” in their special upstairs room with toys and games appropriate for preschool/early primary level. At Destiny Church we value relationship, so our Ignite kids start their morning with play time, during which the leaders encourage cooperation and sharing, and help the kids build friendships.
Each week our Ignite leaders prepare a Bible story lesson, a colouring page or craft activity, games, songs and activities to help our kids learn from the Bible and experience God’s presence. We encourage the children to ask lots of questions about the Bible stories we read, and share what they have learnt each week with their family and friends.
All of our Ignite kids are toilet trained, and we contact parents if a child needs a toilet trip.
Lift (Grade 1 – grade 6)
Lift is a room full of fun, friends and faith!
Our Lift leaders don’t just teach from the Bible; they also equip the kids to live out their faith in everyday life. Each week our Lift leaders prepare a Bible-based lesson, games and activities to help the Lift kids learn about God, understand what the Bible says and develop their own personal relationship with Jesus. We challenge the Lift kids to apply what they have learnt each week and encourage them to invite their friends to join them in kids church.
At Destiny Church we value relationship, so our Lift kids play lots of games requiring teamwork and cooperation, and they are encouraged to build friendships and care for others.
As the Grade 6 kids transition into “big church” at the end of primary school, our Destiny Kids leaders help them to connect with other leaders and find opportunities to serve in church, and also provide opportunities for them to serve in kids church as junior leaders.
