Children

Children’s ministry is so important to us! We aim to help children develop a personal and authentic faith in Jesus. All our programs provide a safe, caring and fun environment with trained teachers and volunteers. For more information, please keep reading.

Creche and Kidzone

We love serving children and families and look forward to partnering with you in 2022.

We are thankful to run in-person classes for Creche (for parents with babies and toddlers) and Kidzone (for children born in 2019-2012) at 85% capacity at our 9:30 and 11:30 am services.

CRECHE
Based on the latest government updates, Creche parents accompanying their child to Creche do not need to make a reservation before attending. There are limited tickets for Creche on a first-come basis. Creche-aged children need to be accompanied by one adult who will need to scan their Vaccine Pass and the LeaveHomeSafe App in the South Lobby.

KIDZONE
As parents do not accompany Kidzone-age children, all attending children must complete a one-time Vaccine Pass Declaration Form until 30 September. An e-mail has been sent to parents of all registered Zoom Kidzone children and all registered in-person Kidzone children with instructions. Only after this form is completed will parents be sent the reservation link on Thursdays at noon to reserve a seat for Kidzone each week. Please note: that the Vaccine Pass Declaration form takes a few days to process.

After 30 September, the above procedure will still be used for Kidzone children aged three to four. However, children aged 5-11 will no longer need to fill out the Vaccine Declaration form. Instead, the proof of one vaccine shot is required for admission each week. Parents will continue to receive the reservation link to reserve a seat to join Kidzone. By 30 November, children aged 5-11 will need to show proof of two vaccine shots. 

Visitors, please go to our Welcome table in the North Lobby to fill out this form (date and age of the child will affect whether needed) on a Sunday you visit or contact children@standrews.org.hk during the week for assistance.
