Laying a solid foundation for our children is of paramount importance to all parents. We believe teaching children the basics of our faith and stories from the bible is important for their future development and progress in life. There are many groups children and youth may attend.
A crèche is held during the morning service each Sunday and is for babies and toddlers who are looked after by experienced helpers. Here the children can have a real fun time with the extensive collection of toys and games.
