Children & Families

Crossway’s generational ministry provides meaningful experiences and high quality environments that aim to be welcoming, helpful and fun.


Are You New?

Welcome to Crossway! We believe that partnering with parents is the best way to raise a personal faith in the next generation. We’re committed to supporting children and families with high quality experiences with a heart for Jesus.

On weekends Kidspace has a place for children from 7 months old to grade six, as well as a dedicated Parents Lounge which provides a relaxing atmosphere for parents with children aged 0-12 months.

Please follow the signs to find the Kidspace information and registration lounge on the lower ground level of the church building. On your first visit, you will be asked to complete a registration form to gather the relevant information to provide high quality care for your child. Our registration team will be happy to assist you with any questions and help you find your child’s room.

When you check in, you will be given a parent pickup sticker which will need to be presented to Kidspace staff when collecting your child. For preschool aged children, parents are encouraged to collect a pager at the pager station near the bottom of the internal stairwell. The pager will buzz if we need to reach you during the service. For primary aged children, we will contact you on your mobile phone (please turn mobile sound off while in adult service) should your child need you.

Once your children have entered Kidspace, we encourage you to attend the adult congregation located on the upper level of the church building and return at the conclusion to collect them. If needed, you are welcome to stay with your child provided you request a visitor’s badge.


Weekend Experiences

Our aim is to make the kids’ service the best time of your child’s week.
Weekend Kidspace experiences start and finish at the same time as adult services – Saturday 5pm and Sunday 8:45am, 10:15am and 11:45am.

 

When You Arrive

All children must be checked into their environment by a parent or guardian.

Once your children have entered Kidspace, we encourage you to attend the adult congregation located on the upper level of the church building and return at the conclusion to collect them. If needed, you are welcome to stay with your child provided you request a visitor’s badge.

For preschool aged children, parents are encouraged to collect a pager at the pager station near the bottom of the internal stairwell. The pager will buzz when we need you during the service. For primary aged children, we will contact you on your mobile (please turn mobile sound off while in adult service) should your child need you.

During The Week

Playgroup

Playgroup provides quality weekly experiences that are welcoming, caring, educational and fun! We believe that playgroup should be a place for parents to find support and experience God’s love as a family, with an engaging environment designed for laughter and play as families to get to know each other.

Playgroups are held during school terms:

Wednesday 10am – 12pm

Cost: $70 per term or $250 per year per family.

For registration and more information, please contact playgroup@crossway.org.au

 

mainly music

“mainly music” is a creative and fun preschool music session where the children learn to appreciate music, improve their motor and language skills, co-ordination and more. Parents and children also enjoy morning tea together. While the adults talk, children participate in “free play” time.

mainly music sessions are held weekly during school terms:

Tuesday 10am, Tuesday 11:15am, Friday 10am and Friday 11:15am.

Cost: $70 per term or $250 per year per family – bookings essential.

For all mainly music registrations and enquiries contact mainlymusic@crossway.org.au

 

MOPS (Mothers Of Pre Schoolers)

Raising children is an important and challenging task, yet many new mothers face it feeling isolated, tired, frustrated and overwhelmed. At Crossway we want to support and care for mums. If you are the mother of a pre-schooler, we’d love you to join one of our MOPS groups. Together we enjoy time out over morning tea, build friendships, discuss life issues, hear teaching based on biblical truths relevant to us and create something to take home. Meanwhile, our children will be having a great time in their own fun experience, playing, creating, singing and doing craft activities.

MOPS sessions are held weekly during school terms:

1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, 9.30am – 11.30am

Cost: $60 per term or $195 per year per family.

For more information, please contact the MOPS team mops@crossway.org.au

 


Child Dedications

So much more than an event, child dedication is a milestone in the life of your family.

It’s an opportunity to acknowledge God’s blessing and thank Him for the precious gift He has entrusted to you. It is also an opportunity for us as a church to partner with you through the adventure of parenthood.

Together we’ll create a unique and memorable moment in celebration of the newest member of your family. We will help you shape a heartfelt promise of your hopes and prayers for your child’s future, and give you the opportunity to share this with significant others.

You will be invited to attend an information session with other families where we’ll explore what dedications are all about here at Crossway, answer any questions you have and help you prepare for the dedication of your little one.

Dedications can take place in a weekend service during the year, in a home or wherever families gather.
