There are two different classes held for children from 3-9 years old that meet during both St Matt's@9 and the 10.30am service, while their parents are in church. Each group explores bible stories through drama, craft, games and activities.
Initially the children come to the church with their parents, where there is children’s talk and song early in the service after which they move out with their teachers to the Sunday school rooms.
At the 10.30 service they return to the church towards the end of the service to be with their parents during Holy Communion. On the first sunday of each month there is no Sunday school at St Matt's'9. We ask parents to ensure that their children either attend Sunday School or stay with them in church.
Each Sunday morning, children come into church with their parents at the start of both St Matt's@9 and the 10.30am service.
Early in the service we have a Kids' Talk and song before they leave with their teachers for their Sunday School Classes.
Youth Group meets at 10-30am on Sunday mornings for a teen Bible Discussion and has a Saturday night social event once a month. Most members coem to St Matt's @ 9 with their parents and then go to their own group after morning tea. Parenst have a chance to go out for coffee or catch up with friends.
