Kids at Eastview enjoy an engaging and age-appropriate Sunday programme that introduces them to Jesus in a fun learning environment offered every week during term.
Everyone is in church for the first 15 - 20 minutes.
The babies and other under-3s go to Creche in the community room.
Upstairs we have four groups:
JAM is for 3 - 5 year olds and caters to the pre-reading level and short attention span of preschoolers. Kids enjoy action songs, short stories, and crafts/activities related to a theme.
Primary school children usually go into two groups after some kids worship songs together.
EB FLAMES JUNIORS is designed for younger ones, usually aged 5 - 7 (Years 0 - 3). Programme includes interactive story telling and activities.
The older kids aged 8 - 10 go to FLAMES SENIORS (Years 4 - 6)
The MIDDLE caters for intermediates and early teens (Years 7 - 10).
We are currently using the Scripture Union Light curriculum.
School holidays and statutory long weekends are the opportunity to do something different; it may be an interactive church service, a sports day or a DVD upstairs. Our childrens programmes follow the NZ school terms.
