Kids’ Church

Wodonga Baptist Kids Church is an exciting place for children to learn about Jesus. We run age appropriate programs that Incite Wonder (Preschool) and Provoke Discovery (Primary) in the lives of our very precious children.

Over 60 volunteer leaders staff the three Sub departments of Kids Church, they devote a great deal of time to teach the children. We welcome children with additional needs.

Between Sundays, we know that you have a huge job ahead of you! We want to partner with you at home- so we have some fabulous tools to do this. The Parent Cue app is available for your gadgets- and gives great prompters for direct conversations and activities that will be fun and build your child's faith and possibly yours too! Just select ‘Preschool' for Baby/Little or Junior Kids and ‘Elementary' for Big Kids Church.
