Children and Youth are a key part of Wheatley Community Church. Our desire is that children and youth get the support, friendship and faith they need to help them through their lives. In a village context WCC feels it is important to partner with local churches to provide the best programs possible. Wheatley Community Church partners closely with Fusion Wheatley to put on kids and youth clubs and Fundays through which we have contact with over 250 local children and youth annually. Following are some of the regular programs Wheatley Community Church runs or supports.
Children: (Sunday Mornings only)
Ground Breakers: For children aged 2-5 we offer a playful Sunday School including some songs, Bible stories and crafts.
Earth Shakers: For kids from years 1 to 4 we play a game or two, dive into the Bible, do some crafts and talk about how we can grow in following Jesus.
Trail Blazers: Getting further into the Bible and discussion, Trail Blazers is for years 5-7. Discussion, banter, drama, all focused around the Bible.
History Makers: During WCC’s Sunday morning service most of our youth go out for a Sunday School Bible Study. With around 20 youth attending we often split into smaller discussion groups. Together we study the Bible and work out how to apply it to our lives.
