Figtree 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.
We love to partner with our parents, in teaching their kids about Jesus. To help with this we have created weekly content online you can access at a time that suits you during the week. Scroll down to see details about our kids programs.
