Kids' Ministry

We believe the Church should be for all ages and it is our desire to see our ministry to children and families grow.  As a result, children and their families are very welcome at our Church and at any of our services.  During term time we run a Sunday morning kids program (Explorer Kids) on alternate weeks at our Warkworth and Matakana churches.  See below for more details.

If you would like anymore information, or would like to get in touch, why not contact Nina, our Children & Families Ministry Leader ( or 021 679 512).
