We are committed to developing a sense of belonging and community, with fun and vibrant space for worship, celebration and teaching. We also want to connect parents and leaders with the same end goal. We aim to work together with you to combine the primary influencers of church and family.
Our children’s ministry aims to bring a clear picture of who Christ is and what it means for them to follow Him each week. We have age appropriate lessons and discuss what that means for them.
Our Parents Room has space to:
- Let your child/ren sleep or play while you listen and watch the service via video feed.
- Feed or change your child/ren in privacy.
This Children’s Ministry area is for children from 6 months up to Pre-Primary. In Water’s Edge we aim to incite wonder, teaching 3 main truths:
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Helping Families Find and Follow Jesus
In Children’s Ministry, our strategy to help families find and follow Jesus is:
BE PRESENT- Connect their faith to a community
CREATE A SAFE PLACE- Clarify their faith as they grow
PARTNER WITH PARENTS- Nurture an everyday faith
MAKE IT PERSONAL- Inspire their faith by your example
MOVE THEM OUT-Engage their faith in a bigger story
We want to be intentional about partnering with you (families) in your role as the primary discipler of your children. We know that in Children’s Ministry, we only have around 40 hours a year to speak into the lives of your children, while you at home have around 3000.
Therefore, we want to equip you as well as we can by:
Being clear on what we are teaching, so it is continued, repeated and reinforced the rest of the week.
- Providing great resources and spaces for children and families to learn and grow.
- Clearly identifying leaders who will be connecting with your children.
- Connecting families to programs, childcare and other recreational activities that run during the week.
