Kids Ministry @ MBC  

 If you are new to our church family we would like you to know that  your kids are very welcome. We have a space up the front right where younger children can come and sit on a rug and cushions and draw and play and as a family feel free to use this space during the service.  We also have a pretty cool creche out past the kitchen where you can take your little ones (preschool) to play.

Our program for 5yrs-11yrs is run upstairs during school term time. Preschoolers are welcome in the program but a parent or older sibling may need to be present to help. We share morning tea, have a bible story, craft and games. There is also a Sunday morning program for teens.
