Children’s Ministry

Little people have a big place in God’s heart and a vital place in Baptist Churches SA & NT

A key way we support Children’s Ministries is through our Children’s Ministry Workers Network. 

This network is a community of Children’s Ministry leaders across Baptist Churches SA & NT. We meet, connect, and share resources in order to support one another and to continually grow in the skills and practice of leading Children’s Ministry in a local church.

Churches should be safe places where people of all ages feel safe, and it’s our duty to make sure we take care of our young people.
