KIDZONE is a program run for children aged 3 up to year 6 where we seek to “Connect kids with God, kids with the bible, kids with kids, and kids with everyday life”. We do this by providing a loving, safe, fun and engaging environment.
After a short time together the children aged from 3-6 years break off to a separate class called ‘Noah’s Ark’ while the remainder of the children stay in the main youth hall. We aim to motivate both children and parents to come each week, using games, memory verses, singing, object lessons and skits; basically doing what we can to present God’s message to the children in varied and exciting ways.
We have a competition that runs for the year to encourage the children to remember what they learn. The children advance along the competition bringing their Bibles and notebooks, learning the memory verses and bringing their friends, receiving prizes along the way.
KidZone isn’t just a program that happens at 10am in another room separate from the main church service. We consider it to be a vital part of the church, where we pray the children will all have fun; and most importantly learn more about our awesome God.

ROCK SOLID / IGNITE is a program with an emphasis on teaching pre/teens, Rock Solid is for Year 7 to year 9 while Ignite is for our teenagers, Year 10 to Year 13. It is held every Sunday morning during the 10.00am service. We leave the main service and move out to a youth-focused study group. It’s a great time of learning and fun, with plenty of opportunity for the young people to interact with their leaders.

- EPIC Youth Hangout is for Year 7 to Year 13 and held every Friday night from 6.30pm to 9.00pm @ CCC. Evenings are low key and youth can come at any time and hang out. Each night we have supper and a devotion.
- EPIC Youth Saturday Night events are for Year 9 to Year 13 and occur once a month with youth notified by email of upcoming events. We have held a variety of crazy events such as car rallies, sports evenings and fear factor.
The main focus of these evenings is friendship and fun, a chance for the group members to invite their friends, with a short devotion given at the end.
- Intermediate Youth Saturday Night Hangouts (Year 7 & 8) / EPIC Youth Saturday Night Hangouts (Year 9 to Year 13)
Both these evenings are organised by the youth for the youth (supported by their parents) and aimed at encouraging the youth to get out and engage with each other in a real way rather than on their phones, by snapchat, Facebook etc. These are low key events but still a heap of fun.
