A place where Jesus becomes irresistable to kids and they come to know Him, rather than just know about Him.
Do church and joy sound like an oxymoron for your child? Not anymore! Kids Church will turn your child’s frown upside-down!

Online streaming of Kids Church has now ended. You can visit our YouTube Channel to view all the previous online episodes. From this weekend (Saturday 6th November, 2021) Kids Church will be held in-person at the Ranelagh Adventist Church, starting at 11.15am. We will be continuing with the series entitled, “Digging into the Heart of God”. We hope that this series inspires your children to get to know God more.
From September 2020 to July 2021 we streamed a series about Digging into the Bible. You can find the archive of those Kids Church programmes here.
