Children and youth are welcome at MEC. We aim to encourage and work alongside parents as they train their children in the good news of Jesus.
Our 10am church has a large children’s program during school terms. Childrenaged 0-14 years join with everyone for the first part of church, before going to their own groups for age-specific activities and teaching. Many of the teachers in our programs are parents themselves.
We do not run a separate program for children at 5pm Night Church, so children and youth can participate in the whole of church with their families. It gives them an opportunity to learn and serve with their parents and grow to love the church that Jesus loves.
During school holidays both 10am church and 5pm Night Church we intentionally provide an encouraging opportunity for all ages to participate in the whole church time. We make extra effort to help children engage in church and learn from God’s word, and to assist parents as they train their children to love Jesus and his church.
We seek to make our church a safe environment for children, and run regular child protection training Our safe ministry trainers are trained by Youth Works and use the Youth Works material which can be found here: https://www.youthworks.net/safeministry
