Our kids program caters for children up to the age of 12.

We believe that children are a vital part of any church family. At Murrumbeena we hope that your child is able to build a solid foundation of our Christian faith.  Zak, our Children & Families Pastor, is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus and would happily discuss any questions. Their contact details are located at the bottom of the page.

Kids' Time

During the 10:00am Sunday service there is an intentional time set where Zak leads the pre-school/primary kids in the 'Early Word'. It is a moment that begins to break open the message for the morning.  Over the last half of morning worship, children are encouraged to join Zak and team in the Kids' Room, to engage in activities that help explore the message more deeply. The Kids’ Room is right next to the main worship area so parents will always be close by!

Countdown 2 Christmas

For the lead up to Christmas we have the  famous “Countdown 2 Christmas”. C2C aims to share the true reason of the season amongst all the busyness of Christmas. We have a dedicated team of ‘Countdown Crew’ volunteers who give their time over the sessions - leading craft groups, puppet shows, dramas, music, games and so much more. 

Our Christmas Eve service on the 24th also gives the opportunity for the kids and families to celebrate together whilst sharing a meal together beforehand.
 The children are split into age appropriate groups so that crafts are not too easy or difficult - as well as helping them make lifelong friends.

It a program for Primary aged children, and for the pre-schoolers we also have Mainly Christmas for a smaller portion of today (with parents alongside); though have a chat with Erin if you have any queries. Also, if you are interested in joining the Countdown Crew, Erin would love to hear from you

Mainly Music

‘Mainly Music’ is a Christian-based, interactive, developmental, spiritual and social program for children under 5 and their carer’s who meet on Tuesdays. Zak oversees this outreach program run at Murrumbeena.
