Children's Liturgy

Our Mission is to make Jesus real to the children. Our Children’s liturgies promote a safe learning and supervised environment, and all are welcome.

They are designed for children aged five to 12 years old, although children under five are welcome with a parent or caregiver. Taking place during the Sunday service at each of our three churches, we celebrate the Liturgy of the Word, pray and sing together.

We have a committed group of Children’s liturgy leaders; many have older children who no longer attend the sessions and new liturgy leaders would be appreciated and welcome.

We are working on extending our children’s liturgy in the future to: 

  • Engage more Children and youth
  • Encourage children to be future Altar servers and lead within the Ministry
  • Include more adult volunteers to share their skills 
  • Make the most of resources on the internet and TV
  • Explore holding things like camps and outdoor activities.

Please contact one of our coordinators to find out more.
