The Gospel is for kids.
At Gracefields Church we want to see children reached and changed through Jesus by God's word in a fun and safe environment.
On Sundays during our 8am and 10am services we run Kids Church. Children start off in the main church service and then are invited to come and join at Kids Church after we have sung together. It’s safe, it’s secure, and most importantly your kids are taught at an age-appropriate level, including a Bible lesson, singing, crafts and games.
If it's your first time, the Kids Church team would love to meet you.
Children up to 2.5 years: We have the family room designed specifically for parents with little kids up to 2.5 years. There's some space where you can keep an eye on your little one and see the service.
Children aged 2.5 - 5 years (pre-school): Kid's church for you is in the children's centre.
Grade R-7: Kid's Church is in the hall to the left of the main building.
Babies: Parents with small babies (breast feeding) we have a baby room if you need to feed or change a nappy just through the foyer.
We run two fun-packed, visitor-friendly programmes for children on Friday nights.
'Cool Club' is for all in Grades 1-4.
'Crew' is for all in Grades 5-7.
Both Cool Club and Crew meet at the Gracefields Church Building from 17:30 until 19:00. Your children would be most welcome to join us!
For Younger Kids
If you are a mom who is struggling to get to evening Bible Studies, we have a morning Mom's group with Child Care available!
Feel free to bring your little ones along. Age one and older will have Child Care but little ones younger than that are welcome to join you in our group.
For more information, or if you would like to join, contact Carla Stephenson on 063 657 9394.
Babies & Tots
Every Tuesday from 10:00 - 11:15 all moms with children between 0-3 years of age are welcome to join us for Stay and Play. It's a casual atmosphere where Moms can have a cup of tea, chat & play with their child. There will also be age appropriate craft table and music time.
For more information on Stay and Play, contact Jo-Ann Cook on 083 274 8742.
