Children and Youth

At NorthWay Uniting Church we have a variety of groups to suit everyone. You can explore these by clicking through below:

Sunday School runs during the 9 am worship service at our Beldon Campus and caters for children three years and above. We meet in the chapel for songs, prayers and sharing before exploring scripture through age-appropriate play, stories and craft activities. Sunday School provides a space for our children to learn and grow in their faith while having fun. All of our Sunday School teachers have Working with Children Checks and many years of experience working with their respective age-groups.

The children start in the service with their families and go to Sunday School after the children’s address. They return to the service before the benediction to share what they have learned. On Communion Sundays (1st and 3rd Sunday of the month) The children meet in the chapel at 9 am and return to the service to share in Communion.

Throughout the year we also run a number of social events including picnics, movie nights and other outings. Family members are welcome to attend these events. Keep an eye out on the NorthWay Facebook page and newsletter for information on upcoming events.

NorthWay Youth Group meet on the 3rd Sunday of every month during the main service at the Beldon Campus. During these meetings we look further at the month’s scripture readings whilst interacting in fun and engaging activities, games, discussions and multimedia. This is all done whilst we enjoy the cool refreshments of MILKSHAKES. These meetings are referred to as NorthWay Youth Milkshake Ministry.

The NorthWay Youth Group also assist at our St Stephens Carramar Campus on the 4th Sunday of each month with the Mix It Up services, helping to prepare and serve the morning tea to the adults that attend the main fortnightly service. This is an additional activity for the Youth, with the Milkshake Ministry being our main Youth Activity for NorthWay Youth Group.

The NorthWay Uniting Church Playgroup is there to serve the local community by providing an opportunity for families to meet for play, friendship and support.

The playgroup meets from 9:00 am until 11:00 am on Tuesdays during school terms at the Beldon Campus.

Each family group donates a piece of fruit and makes a gold coin donation towards costs. The playgroup set up in three individual play areas: the auditorium, the crèche and the outdoor play area.

Most children are accompanied by their parents or grandparents.

Playgroup Leader: Margaret B
