Kids & Youth
ST MATT'S KIDS
St Matt’s Kids is a community of children and leaders seeking to know God better through the Bible. We want everyone of all ages to have the chance to discover more of what God has given us in Jesus and what it means to live for him.
Our children's pastor, Tyler, coordinates the program and leads our team of teachers, helping all the children who come to St Matthew’s to learn about Jesus. Each term we work our way through a different book of the Bible with an age appropriate programme which include songs, games, stories from the Bible, craft and small group discussions.
We have a great team of leaders from the family of St Matthew's. All our leaders have regular training and the required Working with Children and Church Safe documents.

Mania is our school holiday program for children from Pre-primary to Year 6. It runs each morning, Tuesday to Friday, during the first week of the September-October holidays. We wrap up the week with a family fun night on Friday, which all family members are invited to join.
MEDIEVAL MANIA is coming in 2021!
ST MATT'S YOUTH
We’re a community that really cares about three things: Jesus, the Bible and each other. St Matt's Youth is divided into SOLID ROCK and COMMON GROUND. Both groups meet on Friday nights, Sundays and for their own camp during the year.
SOLID ROCK is our junior youth group for years 7-9. It’s active and engaging, full of fun, friends, and food.
COMMON GROUND, our senior youth group for Years 10-12, is intelligent without being intellectual, mature without being old.
We are excited that Youth Group has resumed from our
The evening begins at 6:30pm with games and hang-out time where everyone from years 7 to 12 has the opportunity to chat together or chuck a ball around. The junior and senior groups then split for dinner and the remainder of the night.
The highlight of the evening is a chance to read, study and think about a passage of the Bible together, and then pray.
We wrap up around 8:30pm. $10 per child or $15 per household to cover the cost of dinner would be enormously helpful. Electronic payment greatly preferred.
St Matt’s Youth meet again on Sundays for Bible studies during the St Matthew’s church gatherings. Bible studies are a great way to get to know Jesus and each other better.
SOLID ROCK meets at St Matthew's during our Sunday gatherings at 9am and 11am, and COMMON GROUND at 4:30pm in homes around Shenton Park, where we have some dinner, then head to the 6:30pm gathering at St Matthew’s.
For more information on any of this, feel free to contact our youth pastor, Chris.
A weekend away in summer for SOLID ROCK and friends, having fun, hanging out, and learning together as we study the Bible, and pray.
Stay tuned for more information.
At the start of each year a group of teenagers from COMMON GROUND and young adults from Unichurch head to the shores of Oyster Harbour in Lower Kalgan for a week of fun. We have Bible studies in the morning, seminars before lunch, and meetings in the evening. Every other minute of the day is filled with fun activities, great food, and making new friends.
Stay tuned for Camping Ground 2021!
