MORE KIDS MORE LIKE JESUS
We love families and kids at and have created spaces that work for all age. For children aged 1yr olds to Year 6, we have fantastic leaders who love kids and enjoy seeing them grow and develop in their relationship with God and others! Pastor Nicole leads an amazing team who believe in providing children with age-specific learning that is designed to impact them with the amazing reality of God in a safe and fun environment. We acknowledge that learning about God starts at home and we consider it a privilege to partner with parents in teaching children about our amazing God.
Newborn - 18mths
For parents with babies aged 0-18 months we offer two Parent Rooms; a lounge located off the foyer with space for your crawlers and walkers to move, and a quieter room at the back of the main auditorium. They both have live feeds of the service, toys and changing tables. We also have a play area behind the sound desk in the main auditorium. If you need any help with your little one (or a toilet break) just let one of our team leaders know and they will be happy to help!
1yr - 2yrs
Power Tots is for children aged 1year (and walking) to 2 years old. We have a number of areas set up with a range of activities that your kids will enjoy. They can come in at any time during the service and parents are welcome to stay and help their kids settle (it's a great social time for you too). You can find us at the House located at the front of the church carpark - look for the flags outside the door and our friendly kids team members who will help your family.
Power Sparks is for children aged 3-4 and gives the kids a greater opportunity to learn about God and His love. They will enjoy play time, worship, bible teaching and small groups. Power Sparks is held in the Conference Room during the 9am service and in the House during the 11am service. Follow the flags to find your way or ask one of our friendly team leaders to help!
Year 1 - Year 6
Power Zone is for primary school aged children. In this area we dive a bit deeper into God's Word and apply action to what we learn. We believe that it is not enough to tell kids about God, we want them to experience God for themselves! Our children learn, grow and begin to make a difference in their lives, and the lives of the people around them. This is located in the HUB which you access through the backdoor directly outside the main doors of the church. (Look out for the big blue wall!)
EXTRA INFO FOR PARENTS
WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT OUR SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE
You will see some of our friendly leaders in the foyer wearing RED T-shirts. They will help answer your questions and show you directions. If you are NEW TO ELIM or JUST VISTING start in the foyer and we will help you out.
SIGNING IN: Your kids can come into Elim Kids as soon as they arrive. All kids must be signed in by a parent. We use a printed sticker system which makes it super easy to drop off and pick up your kid. Look for the team member with a tablet or laptop to sign in.
SIGNING OUT: Children will not be permitted to leave the kids areas without their designated adult. They will need to bring their sticker with them to collect the matching child. We ask that you arrive promptly after the service to collect your kids.
WE ARE HERE TO HELP
Whether its a new baby, kids moving to the next stage or the challenges of parents we want to give you as much support as we can. Ask any of our team for help settling your kids into new environments or if you need an extra coffee that morning.
In addition to our services we run Parenting Courses during the year and have a Lifegroup for mothers with infants.
Please ask anyone in a Elim Kids shirt if you are unsure of what to do or where to go!
