At RBC Kids, we believe it is a privilege and honour to plant the seed of knowledge about Jesus Christ in our children. We strongly believe the words of Proverbs 22:6 which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We trust that if we share the knowledge of God, and Water with the Word, that our children will carry Christ with them throughout life, and that is our greatest hope.
Our crèche caters for children from 6 months to 2 years old. Our team of lovely volunteers cares them for them in the Family Ministry Centre. If ever you child needs your attention, we will display your unique code on a screen in the church hall to let you know. Their comfort and safety is of the utmost importance to us while we care for them in a nurturing environment.
Our Seedlings room is for children ages 2 to 5 years old. They learn a variety of basic truths about the gospel, which change on a monthly basis. Each week, they engage in worship, a video lesson, and relevant activities that support the week’s lesson. Our goal is to impart the knowledge of God in a fun and engaging way that makes them excited to come to church.
The Sprouts room is for children ages 6 to 12 years old. The monthly themes revolve around qualities like perseverance, service, self-control etc… Like the Seedlings, each week’s service involves worship, a video lesson and relevant activities that support the week’s lesson. We aim to provide our Sprouts with practical skills that see them look to God and His word for how to live life.
Our room ages are a guideline. We recognize that all children are different. Some children may be ready at age five to engage in Sprouts, or some six-year-olds may feel more comfortable in Seedlings. Some children may be more comfortable in the same room as siblings. We like to encourage children around the cusp of “room-change-age” to be involved in deciding which room to attend, with the end goal being that RBC Kids church is a place they are happy to attend.
