Live Connection Church provides a wide range of Kids programs in a safe place where children can build strong connections with God and others.

Kids Church – Sunday Mornings 10am

Catered for children aged 1 year to Year 5, KIDS Church aims to equip our kids for a life-long faith by participating in creative, bible-based teaching in a fun, relational and child focused learning environment.

Each Sunday, our children head out to KIDS Church during the service after our KIDS Spot. At KIDS Church we split into three age groups that have been catered to suit the age level of the children in that group.

Activities include fun and interactive games, that encourage co-operative learning and problem solving, Creative Bible teaching and age appropriate craft linked to our weekly theme. After our more formal KIDS Church program, we provide a time for supervised free play that allows each child to foster friendships amongst peers as well as build relationships with our KIDS Church leaders.

We have three age groups at Kids Church so that your child can be taught at their level:

 Nursery to pre-school group

“Drip down, O heavens, from above, And let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it. I, the LORD, have created it.” ISAIAH 45:8

Raindrops take so many different forms. They have the potential to refresh, to cleanse and to end drought. No matter what age our children are, they have the potential to change our world, and make it more like God’s Kingdom. They have the potential to refresh people, excite people and bring people out of the drought in their life, through the hope in Jesus! At Live Connection Church we believe it is important to begin fostering a love of Christ from an early age.

Our Raindrops leaders are incredibly talented at working with little ones and each week these children participate in a wide variety of fun activities that help them learn the basic truths of God! Raindrops is appropriate for children between 1 year and 4 years. 

 Early primary group – Kindergarten to Year 2

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” PROVERBS 3:5-6

Ripples are defined as a small wave or series of waves on the surface of the water, especially as caused by a slight breeze or an object dropping onto it.  We believe our children can be like Ripples caused by Jesus, which cause Kingdom ripples throughout the world wherever they go! We believe that children can be a light to the world and be an influence for Jesus that lasts generations! Our Ripples have a bright future – who bring hope and joy to others because of Jesus!

Ripples is where Children can begin to go deeper in their faith and grow in their relationship with Jesus. During Ripples, children are equipped to follow Jesus throughout the week, and are challenged with fun, creative Bible teaching, that is taught in a way that everyone can implement the practical lessons into their lives! Our Ripples children are given the opportunity to learn and interact with the older group, the Waves, each week.

 Upper primary group – Years 3-5

“For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and it’s waves roar (the LORD of Hosts is His name)” ISAIAH 51:15

Waves are beautiful, breathtaking and constant. Look at the whole process of a wave – it is formed, grows, crashes, and echoes into other waves and affects its surroundings. Our children will start somewhere, reach a peak, crash, learn some lessons, make some mistakes, have some wins, have some losses, and start again! It’s a journey and a process and by having their foundations firmly planted in God, no matter how many waves they ride, they will be perfected over time in His image – and they can help others experience this journey with God along the way.

Our Waves group is a relational and fun group where our older children can be challenged and grow in their faith in Jesus. Our Waves group is always full of great discussion, practical lessons, questions and laughter! By interacting with the Ripples group each week, our Waves kids are given the opportunity to begin developing leadership and mentoring skills.
