Children & Intermediates
Shore Kids and Grapple are running every Sunday at Albany Junior High School!
Sprouts: Under 2s
Sprouts is a safe space where parents can drop-off or stay with their 0-2 yr old children at any time during the service. This space is supervised by trained volunteers and has age-appropriate toys.
Bounce: 2-3 yr olds
Bounce is a ministry in which 2-3 yr olds begin to discover who God is through music and stories from the Bible. Bounce starts at 10am, when the church service begins.
Basecamp: 4-5 yr olds
Basecamp is a fun and purposeful programme for 4-5yr olds, based around God’s big story (the Bible). Basecamp starts at 10am.
Boost: 6 yr olds to school Year 6
Boost helps children understand the big story of the Bible, discover more of who God is and come to know Jesus in a personal way. Boost starts at 10am.
Parents, please register your children for these ministry areas before the service starts at 10am. Registration for all kids programmes happens in Kiwi Block (closest block to the gym).
Grapple is our intermediate aged (Y7-8) ministry. This is a crucial age where kids are engaging with their faith and personal identity at a deeper level, and we want to support and encourage them in that journey from a biblical perspective.
Our Grapple community meets during the church service on Sunday to hang out and explore how the Bible applies to real life. Grapple kids join the adults for the first part of the church service, then head to their ministry area in Tui Block.
