Northreach Kids encourages children to learn about God through activities that are targeted specifically to all ages from one year olds to Grade 7. The Northreach Kids Leadership Team aims to provide an interactive, fun and relational environment for children to grow spiritually and emotionally.
There are around 200 children in total who attend “Kids’ Church” during our morning service at Kirwan during school terms (9.30-10.45 am). Parents can register their children in the hall before the morning service.
Information on all our individual programs can be located by clicking on the links below.
What are the different groups included in Northreach Kids?

Kidsz’ Music Sundays – Kids’ Church kicks off with singing to praise and worship God, accompanied by our very own kids’ band.
Northreach Kids also practices “Child Safe Church”. ChildSafe is about keeping children safe. All churches and Christian organisations have a God-given mandate to do just that. God is concerned for the vulnerable. He welcomes children and warns us against doing anything that could turn them away from him. For these reasons, churches need to be proactive about the safety of the children in their care.
Northreach Kids practices this by ensuring all our volunteers have blue cards and that they undergo training once a year on Child Safety. Northreach Kidsz has introduced a sign in and out system with security tags to ensure that the child in their care is returned to their parents safely.
