Children

Children’s ministry is so important to us! We aim to help children develop a personal and authentic faith in Jesus. All our programs provide a safe, caring and fun environment with trained teachers and volunteers. We love serving children and families and look forward to partnering with you in 2023.

New To Children's Ministry

We are thankful to run classes for Creche (for parents with babies and toddlers) and Kidzone (for children born in 2019-2012) at our 9:30am and 11:30am services. Our programs are for children whose parents regularly attend our services and are conducted in English. Therefore, children need to be reasonably fluent in English to participate. Our programs are not suitable for children who do not usually speak English during the week. Visitors, may go to our Welcome table in the South Lobby on a Sunday you visit or contact children@standrews.org.hk during the week for assistance in making a reservation.

Please note: For safety reasons children need to be dropped-off & picked-up by a parent/guardian.

Creche

Creche parents accompanying their child to Creche do not need to make a reservation before attending. To avoid overcrowding there are limited seats for Creche on a first-come basis. We also have a designated Baby room in the back of our auditorium for parents with babies to use while listening to the sermon.

 

Nursing Mothers: If you have a need for more privacy other than using the Baby room during the service, please contact the Kidzone Welcomer in the Basement.

Please note: Crèche is only available for children who’s parents attend our morning services. Also, over summer (July & August), Crèche facilities remain open but there will be no organised lessons.

Kidzone

Parents need to make a reservation for their child to join the Kidzone class that matches their year of birth. This helps us prevent overcrowding in classrooms, plan better and adhere to fire and safety regulations. We know you want your child to get the most out of attending our programs, and not cause disruptions to others by coming in late. Therefore we have a cut-off time for Kidzone check-in at 10:10 am for the 9:30 am service and 12:10 pm for the 11:30 am service.

Friendship Garden Playgroup

Friendship Garden is an international pre-school playgroup conducted in English. This is a great environment to meet new families and find friendship and support. Children can play in our playground or indoors with organised craft time, storytime, and music time!

 

Term 1: 21 September – 7 December 2023 – Registration opens on 21 August. Term 2: Starts on 18 January 2024
