Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these’ (Mark 10:14)
Church is the family of God, and at Willoughby Park we have a special emphasis on children and youth. We provide quality programs so that children might grow up to know the love of God, love him with all their heart, and love others as themselves.
Please note: church (incuding children's and youth ministries) will not be run in our buildings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
KIDS ON SUNDAYS
Our main children’s and youth program is run during our 9:30am Willoughby Park service.
Children join with the adults in the first part of the service which includes singing and a short family segment. Then they go out for games, craft, and learn more about God at Kids’ Church.
We have three groups:
Explorers (Walkers to Pre-School)
Sparks (Kindy to Year 5)
Base Camp (Year 6 to Year 12)
All our leaders are Safe Ministry trained and hold a Working with Children Check number (WWCC). Our Base Camp (youth group) also holds fun social activities.
Mini Movers is a music and movement program for pre-schoolers and their carers. We meet every Wednesday during school terms between 9:45am and 11:00am. We would love for you to visit. The first session is free, and if you choose to stay it costs $50 per family per term (pro-rata). This cost covers all craft activities and morning tea for the term. Come along and join us for some mid-week fun!

We join with other local churches to teach Protestant/Anglican Scripture at Willoughby Public School and at Willoughby Girls’ High School.
