Vision for youth and children's ministries
We believe that our children are a gift from God, and that we have a responsibility to show them the way to have a relationship with God. We do this through healthy involvement, positive role models and active encouragement and nurture using the scriptures as our base, and the life and love of Christ as our example. We aim to cater for all children no matter what age, or circumstance, whilst providing age appropriate material, activities and events.
Little Hands Playgroup
Activities for Pre-schoolers | Social Support for Parents & Carers
Little Hands Playgroup provides an opportunity for parents, grandparents and carers, with young children, to enjoy singing and playing together, in a safe, friendly environment. Activities include singing & music, morning tea, indoor and outdoor activities (as weather permits). All children from birth to preschool age are welcome. We meet Mondays 10 -11.30am during School Term in the Church Hall.
Grey Street Primary School Child Mentoring Program
Kids Hope Mentoring is a non-profit organisation that operates throughout Australia. Traralgon Baptist partners with Grey Street Primary School to provide weekly one to one mentoring for students needing extra support. These are trained mentors who meet with a student for one hour a week during the school year. Kids Hope not only meets the needs of vulnerable children but provides opportunity to connect with families and teachers.
Fun, encouraging, faith-based innovative Bible teaching for kids
Kidz Rock! provides an environment for kids to learn and grow in their faith. Spiritual transformation happens when kids come to know Jesus, rather than just know about Jesus. Our job is to prepare the soil of kids’ hearts so seeds of faith can grow, and a true relationship with Jesus can happen. We meet on Sundays at 10am (during School term) in the Church Hall. We welcome all Prep to Year 8 children.
Fun, Friendship and Life skills | Faith Talk for Teenagers
Youth Group provides a great social network for all Secondary School age children. Youth Group meets weekly during school term to do varying fun filled activities and faith building and encouraging bible study. All children in Secondary School are welcome to come along and bring a friend. Fridays (during school term) at 7:30 in the Church Hall, unless otherwise notified.
