Kids

Love • interactive • Jesus

At FAC, our vision is to lead children into a personal relationship with Jesus, by running age appropriate programs where biblical truths are taught in ways that are both fun and interactive. Our dedicated teams of leaders and LiTs (leaders in training) are diligent in working to ensure a loving, safe learning environment is provided for kids of all ages.

Our programs

Playtime

Playtime is a welcoming and caring group for parents or carers with babies to kids not yet at school, to meet together for support and encouragement. While kids play together, the adults have an opportunity to engage in sharing about life, as friendship and relationships are built.
