CityLife Kids ministry is available at CityLife Church Manningham. We treasure each child and are committed to provide a safe, fun and exciting environment for them to learn about God. Our aim is to not only impact the children in our congregation, but also those in our community, building them up in their identity in Christ.

Our Kids Church have customised programs in individual rooms:
Preschool 2-5
Primary Prep-6

Our desire is to have our children join us right from when their programs commence, at the start of each service for Preschool 3 through to Primary 6 rooms. Preschool 1 & 2 rooms are opened during the greeting time of the church service. All our programs finish at the end of the church service. During school holidays we may offer shorter programs, which can be confirmed via our events calendar.

Get Involved

Church is not a place we go to. It is a HOME we belong to. Like a family, we share life together and contribute using our talents, gifts and finances. When we connect with those around us and engage our gifts, we become part of a bigger community of people, all working together, taking part in what God is doing. How can you get involved?
