Due to Covid restrictions, Playtime has been suspended until we are allowed to gather in greater numbers in our halls. We are hopeful that we will be able to meet again soon.
Playtime is our play group for kids aged 0-5 years and their mums, dads, grandparents, or carers. It’s run by parents from our church, and is a fun morning of craft, toys, playdough, music, and more. We also enjoy morning tea together.
We meet here, at Seaforth Anglican Church, on Wednesday mornings during term time from 9.30am to 11.30am. To cover costs, we do ask for a small donation of $3 per week or $20 per term.
Places are limited, so please get in touch with us first to confirm if a place is available. Feel free to call the church office on 02 9948 1997 or click here to email us.
Sundays for Kids
During our 9am church service the kids stay in. There is lots of books, colouring, and quiet games for them to use.
All the kids join the whole church for the first part of the 445 service, and then go off with their leaders for their kids programs. They’re also served a light snack to see them through to dinner time.
Babies and Toddlers – we have a crèche for babies and toddlers that meets in the Chapel. You are welcome to stay in here with your child, where you can see and hear the service.
Preschoolers – We call it Minis, and it includes play, craft, and an interactive reading time of well-known Bible stories. Minis meets in its own room, adjacent to the foyer of the Ministry Centre.
Primary school kids – Transformers is kids program. It is a fun and active time for school-aged kids (K-5). Here, they make friends and to learn about Jesus, and what it means to be friends with him.
Bridge – Bridge is our program for years 6-8. We enjoy some snacks and spend time in the Bible thinking about what it means to follow Jesus. The teaching time aligns with the teaching series in Church
Safe Ministry (Child Protection)
At Seaforth Anglican Church we believe that children are a precious gift from God. Therefore, we have a special responsibility to ensure that they are cared for in a safe environment. We take our responsibilities in this regard very seriously, and aim for the highest standards of “Safe Ministry” (Child Protection). Seaforth Anglican supports and abides by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney’s Safe Ministry Journey policies. For further information, click here.
Working With Children Checks (WWCC)
All volunteers and paid members of staff who work with children have a unique WWCC number, which is now a statutory obligation in New South Wales. This WWCC number verifies that a person has been cleared to work with children.
Safe Ministry (Child Protection) training
All volunteers and paid members of staff who work with children have received hands-on training in safe ministry policies and procedures, and are accredited by Anglican Youthworks (the accrediting body for Safe Ministry training in the Anglican Diocese of Sydney). This training and accreditation is renewed every three years.
During all child-related activities and ministries children are supervised by adults, and best practice is observed in relation to the ratio of adults to children.

Finally POST- is about creating a community of commitment not convenience.

Our Growth Groups are the heart-beat of our church. These small groups of around 8 people meet mid-week in various people’s houses, or here at church. We read the Bible together, we discuss what it means, and how it intersects with and shapes our daily lives. We call them Growth Groups because they’re designed to help us grow to be more like Jesus.
Our Growth Groups are also our main way of building a sense of belonging and community. If you’re considering joining our church, and you’d like to develop deep and lasting relationships with people, then belonging to a Growth Group is vital.
