Jesus Cares About Kids and So do We!

On Sunday mornings we have a brief break in the service before the children head out to Valley Kids. Valley kids aims to be a fun-filled program involving craft, creative teaching, music and games.  We have a great team of skilled and dedicated children’s workers who seek to share Jesus with kids in a way that is fun and engaging.

Valley Kids now offers programs for six different age levels each Sunday morning.

  • Creche – for the babies and toddlers
  • Discoverers – for preschool. (please pack some snacks for your child)
  • Explorers – years Prep-1
  • Adventurers – years 2-3
  • Navigators -yrs 4-5
  • Trailblazers  – youth, yrs 6-8

Keeping our Kids Safe

At Valley we care deeply about the safety of our kids. We have a safe church officer who works with the staff team and ministry teams to ensure standards of child safety are upheld.

All of our staff and volunteers go through a training and vetting process before they are able to take on a role of serving in a ministry involving minors. This process includes:

  • acquiring a Working With Children Card
  • registering with the Safe Church Unit (the statewide body of that upholds ministry standards in the Presbyterian Church of Victoria)
  • applying to register with the Safe Church unit as a childrens or youth worker (this involves an application form, interview and the following up of referees)
  • initial and ongoing training through the safe church unit.

If you are concerned about the safety of a particular child or the safety standards of one of our ministries you can raise this with the relevant team leader; the safe church coordinator Mrs L Fortmann; one of our pastors; or with the Safe Church Officer Fiona Bligh 0499 090 449.
