We want to encourage our families to know Christ together and as whole families to make him known.
Children are a great blessing from God and we seek to run excellent kids work on Sunday mornings and in the week.
We run groups for children between the ages of 0-18 every Sunday during our 9am and 11am services. Our children join us in the service for the first 10-15 minutes of the meeting and then go to small groups where they have lots of fun with games, a small snack, an age-appropriate Bible story and some singing. A youth group Bible study for grades 8-10 meets during the Sunday Service while grades 11-12 sit in the service and have discussion and donuts after. We also have a cry room with audio relay for carers of really young babies who may need feeding during the service.
Hope Church also runs groups in the week during government term time for almost every age-group:
Bumps and Babies (pregnant mothers and babies under 1yr): Bumps and Babies takes place on Thursday mornings in homes around the area. We meet for lots of cake and conversation and encouragement in dealing with new babies! For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
mainly music (from 0-5 years): Fridays 3:15-4:30pm at Hope Church. We meet at 3:15pm for tea for parents and carers and a snack for the little ones, with lots of fun and exciting toys to play with. Then it’s time for the real fun with a 45 minute interactive music session with lots of singing, dancing, shaking, hopping, drumming, twirling, learning, cuddling and games. R30 per family but your first visit is free.
Hope Kids (Grade R-4): Come and join the fun every Friday 3-4:30pm at Hope Church with a Bible story, craft, snacks, games and more! We also have an after school club & lunch from 1-3pm – R30 for lunch. Contact email@example.com for more info or just come along any week!
TGiF (Grade 4-7): This Hope Church kids ministry meets at the church every Friday evening from 5-7pm for lots of fun, games, a light supper, a message, and discussion and friendship time. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about this ministry, or just come check it out one Friday!
Hope Church Youth (Grade 8-12): Friday night is a more laid-back, social get together than the serious business of Sunday mornings. We meet from 7-9pm to play games, hear from God’s word, hang out, sing, and generally have a good time together. Anyone between the ages of 14 (or Grade 8) and 18 (or Matric) is welcome. Our gatherings are more exciting than our name—that’s a promise!
