Please reserve seats for all kids as well (including in prams or in arms), as we need our total numbers are still restricted.
During the service we will have a Kids’ Spot, and we have Sunday School during school term for those aged in prep to year 6.
We also have a Parents’ Room with an audio feed. We ask that you bring your own toys and clean down the chairs after use.
