The Mosaic ministry to children and families is regularly changing and adapting to meet the needs of our re-forming communities and broader community context.
This ministry aims to be child-focussed and engages with children and families at all levels to develop and design a space that is safe and beneficial for everyone involved. We aim to uphold parents and carers as the primary discipleship influence on children and honour the role of key adults in children’s lives. Our heart is to build a vibrant relational community that supports children and their families so they can thrive spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Kids Ministry (School years kindy to year 6)
Kids Ministry is offered each week of the school term at our 10:30 service. We alternate between meeting in small groups, meeting as one large group affectionately referred to as Kids Khaos Week and engaging in other activities. Our small groups are relational and focus on understanding the Bible at a deeper level with same age peers. Kids Khaos Weeks focus on creating a safe and fun filled active environment for kids to engage in games, stories, and creative expression that helps them wonder, explore, discover and express their growing faith in Jesus. Other activities include small service projects or staying in the service for a ‘Kids in Service’, a different service then usual that aims to connect our kids with the adults who attend our church.
Evatt 10am congregation
The Evatt congregation has Kid’s Ministry on a fortnightly basis. There are 2 age groups; children aged 3 – 10 and children aged 10 and above.
The aim of these groups is to explore the Bible at a personal level with volunteers who engage in a relational ministry that supports intergenerational connection.
One week per month the congregation meets in Brunch Groups where small groups discuss a teaching topic over a small meal together. Groups are allocated with the intention of having families and kids in the same space so connections can be formed.
The fourth Sunday of the month is an intergenerational service where all ages are encouraged to participate in a creative service that promotes interaction and learning together.
The Gungahlin congregation has Kid’s Ministry on a regular basis during the school term. The Kid’s Ministry is open to ages 2-12 and focuses on small group time and exploring the Bible at a personal level.
