Weekend Experiences

Is a relaxed and quiet space for parents with children who are under the age of 1. The lounge is hosted by a team member, where you can watch the service on a screen and have a cup of coffee/tea while taking care of your little one.

Babies Room
For children aged from 7 months – 2 years. This play space is hosted by caring team members who teach about God’s love in a safe, secure environment.

Preschool Room
For Children aged from 2 years – 4. The Preschool Room is a fun, engaging and age appropriate environment. Everyone is encouraged to play, and worship, within small groups.

The Prep – Grade 4 environment is designed to build faith through drama-based bible teaching, games, and intentional small groups. Children meet with the same group and leader every week, fostering meaningful relationships allowing Holy Spirit grow and transform their lives.

Tailored to engage our preteen community, we have fun through upfront games, teaching, and worship. Small groups we believe are critical to building their faith throughout the teenage years. This environment prioritises transitioning our senior primary kids into high school and Crossway Youth.

KILN (Kids In Leadership Now): KILN is our preteen transition environment from Crossway Kids weekend experiences, into our Friday Night Crossway Youth environment. KILN runs on the 1st & 3rd Fridays of the school term, from 7pm-9pm, and is open to all Grade 5-6 children.

Growing Faith in Families

This is a beautiful milestone in the life of your family, and a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge God’s blessing and thank Him for the precious gift that He has entrusted to you. It is also an opportunity for us as a church to partner with you through the adventure of parenthood. Dedications take place throughout the year during a weekend service or in a private family environment.

 

We believe that baptism is an outward declaration of a faith decision that has already occurred internally. Discover Baptism is a training session for Grade 5-6 children and their parents to understand how they can take the next step in their discipleship journey.

 


We are committed to providing an inclusive church environment for children and youth with additional needs.
