Our Mission:
To create a strong, thriving ministry where kids are loved and volunteers are valued; where the life-changing truth of Scripture becomes a life-long reality for every child that walks through the door.

We are staffed by a caring and dedicated group of volunteers.

Babies & Toddlers

Cry Room

All Sunday Services
8am, 9:45am & 6pm
Main Building | free

The cry room is provided at the back of the church building allowing parents to sit with their children during the Sunday services. Parents have the freedom to move around without feeling like they’re distracting the other congregation members.

Provided in the room are couches, toys and an audio loop so that you can still hear the service while attending to the needs of your little one.

Playtime (Playgroup)

Thursdays during school terms
9:30-11:30am
0-5 year olds  | Church Hall | $2

Playtime is a place where parents and carers can bring their children aged 0-5 years old to play, have fun and connect with others from the local community. We do a number of activities including reading stories, singing songs, and craft. We meet in the Church Hall which opens into a gated outdoor play area. Morning tea is provided each week for both children and carers.

Security, comfort, and peace of mind!  Parents can enjoy their Sunday experience knowing their child will be loved and cared for by our team.

Whilst in the care of our team, children are offered play opportunities that encourage co-operation, sharing, and positive interaction.

Our Sunday school program seeks to teach each child who they are in Christ.

Our teachers will engage your preschool-aged children in interactive Bible learning, play simple group games with them, and offer activities that will stimulate their imaginations. Age appropriate activities are combined with loving attention to give your child a positive experience. Your child will look forward to coming to church!

Promiseland aims to create ‘The Best Hour of Every Kid’s Week!’
We encourage and equip children to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. We will teach them the Word of God, in creative, exciting and unforgettable ways, so that the life-changing truth of scripture becomes a reality for each and every child.

Scripture in Schools

St John’s is involved in teaching scripture, along with volunteers from other local churches, to primary-aged children in our community. We are involved in scripture in five local primary schools across the Shire.

  • Sutherland North Public School
  • Loftus Public School
  • Sutherland Public School
  • Woronora Public School
  • Minerva  School

During the Holidays

Children’s programs for primary-aged children run throughout the year, including  soccer camps and holiday clubs.  Information is posted on our church events page when these are organised. These events are a fun way to spend time with friends, introduce kids to Jesus, and grow in a relationship with God.
