Children & Families

Children and young families are very welcome at St John’s.

We always have a time in the service especially for children and arrange for children to participate as much as possible in the service through various tasks, like welcoming, bringing in the Bible, lighting candles etc. We also have a children’s corner with activities for them.

For more information contact the church office.

Messy Church is an informal, inter-generational gathering held once every two months on a Saturday evening, from 5pm – 7pm. Contact the church office to find the next date and/or visit the Faith and Connection page for more information.

Our Time is an informal, caring, friendly playgroup that meets at 10am on the 4th Friday of each month.


St John’s Uniting Church is committed to having a church environment that is safe for everyone. It has implemented the Uniting Church’s Keeping Children Safe (KCS) Policy. As part of this policy, all employees, leaders and volunteers must have a current Victorian Working With Children Check (WWCC), sign a Code of Conduct, and attend Safe Church Training every two years. Two Safe Church Contact people have also been appointed.
