*** Please note that our Sunday gatherings have been temporarily suspended due to coronavirus restrictions. Therefore our regular children’s programs are not currently running. Children’s content is available each Sunday as part of our online church services. ***
Children are a vital and valued part of the Trinity Church Aldgate community. Just as the adults spend part of Sundays being taught and encouraged, our pre-school and primary school students also have the opportunity for age-appropriate learning in a fun environment.
6 MONTHS – 3 YEARS
Children and babies are a welcome part of our church gatherings. We provide a crèche area at the 9 AM gathering each week, located in the foyer of the hall, for 6 Months – 3 years. Parents and children are more than welcome to come and play with us. Some parents may choose to stay with their children or come and go as required. Crèche starts when the other children leave for Kids’ Church.
Each week we have a team of adult and teenage volunteers, who will play, sing and read to and care for the children, during the gathering. For more information about the crèche and how it runs, please speak to the Trinity Church Aldgate office.
Parents can feel free to feed children during the service.
Reception – Year 6
At our 9AM gathering, after a time together which includes a special song and teaching time for the children, they will be invited to leave for their teaching program in Kids’ Church. Art and craft, singing and drawing, hearing the Bible read & taught, playing games and learning memory verses all form part of our Kids’ Church program for children from 3 years of age to year 6. The programs available at our 9AM gathering range from 6 months to Year 6 and include Creche (6 months), Minis (age 3 to Reception), Kids’ Church (Year 1-6).
At our 11AM gathering, where our older families generally attend, all in years 5-8 are welcome to go out during the sermon for a separate talk on the sermon passage. This is pitched at a more age appropriate level and application.
Our Children’s Ministries run throughout School Terms. Activity packs are provided for younger children during the school holidays.
Safe ministry commitment
In all ministries to children and youth at Trinity Church Aldgate, every adult leader and helper has submitted to police checks and been approved for work with children by the Adelaide Anglican Diocese and State Government. This includes undergoing child safe environments training and safe church communities training. All teenage helpers work under the supervision of experienced adult leaders, and those aged 14-17 years are also required to be approved by the Diocese.
Please do not hesitate to talk to the leaders if you have any questions about our child protection policies. For more information about the Adelaide Anglican Diocese safe ministry procedures, or to begin the process of approval to work in children’s ministry areas, visit the Diocese safe ministry website here.
Mainly Music is a fun music and movement group for parents/carers to enjoy together with their young child(ren). We run Mainly Music on Monday mornings during school terms. Find out more information here.
