Children’s Ministry

Children are precious, teachable and a very important part of our community.

Jesus’ Kingdom Life Groups

9:30am service: There is no JK2-3 group – these children are invited to attend crèche. JK3-5 and JK5-8 are combined, and JK8-12 is for Years 3 – 6.
4:30pm service: All four groups are offered, with Year 6 children joining in with Gear Up, the high school group.

They are fun, energetic, biblically based, relationship-building life groups for kids of all ages (2 years – 12 years) where they can grow to know Jesus as their friend, Saviour and Lord.

Families’ Ministry

Orana Playtime

Mondays 9.30am –11.30am.

Please email office@tcbc.org.au for more information

Orana Playtime is an exciting activity for those with children aged 0 –5 years. (‘Orana’ is an aboriginal word meaning ‘welcome’ ). We meet weekly during school terms in the Red House, for two hours of fun and games, while the parents enjoy chatting, coffee and playing with their children. Grandparents, aunties, uncles or nannies are also welcome to bring children along.
Playtime is a great opportunity to connect with other families in the community, to share with each other and build into each other’s lives. Playtime also aims to provide a positive, safe, happy and caring environment where each child and parent can grow as an individual, develop a sense of belonging and become a valued member of a community group. We value everyone’s involvement and want you to feel a part of Playtime.
Activities include craft, singing, games, outings, and much more. To cover the costs of activities and provide new equipment, we charge a small fee of $30 per family per term.

Mainly Music

Tuesdays 10-11.30am during term time
$50 per term

Mainly music is a fun music group for parents or caregivers to enjoy together with their young child (0-6 years).
It is made up of a thirty-minute session of music, rhyme and movement, followed by morning tea and then a time of unstructured play for the children and an opportunity for the carers to chat.
