knowing, growing & showing God's love

We are so excited that you have taken some time out of your day to visit with us and we trust your time will be spiritually enriched.

If this is your first time to visit this church, or any church for that matter, we want you to feel welcomed and accepted. Our heart is that you discover Bethlehem Baptist Church as a place you can call home, as we take you on a deeper spiritual journey with your life in God.

We count it an honour that you are considering being part of our family and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.

Ka pai to koutou ra – Have a nice day!

Babies
Babies

Age: newborn to walking

The Nurture room is available for new babies and their parents. This is a very popular, comfortable, private space packed full of love, cake, coffee and support. The service is live streamed, and upon entering you will be welcomed by a volunteer who is there to serve you coffee, and to support you with whatever you need during the service.

Toddlers
Toddlers

Age: 1 (walking) to 3 year olds

You will find our beautiful Toddler Room set upwith plenty of age appropriate toys, music and stories and snack time to engage these young ones as they transition into time away from their families. You are welcome to stay and support your child, or as they grow in confidence you can leave them in the very capable hands of our friendly team members who are very skilled as making this time as easy on everyone as possible. Your child will be issued a pager number, and if you are needed at any point during the service, this number will go up on the big screen in the auditorium. All of our volunteers are police -checked, and empowered to provide your little one with a secure, welcoming, consistent environment that lets them know they are valued members of our faith community.

Preschool
Preschool

Age: 3 to 6 year olds

We have a ball of fun in our Preschool Room on Sunday mornings!
Our dedicated team lead the children in an engaging and interactive mat time, with lively songs and creatively told stories from the Bible. The children are then able to enjoy a yummy snack, have a go at the craft table, and enjoy free play with age appropriate toys and even the swings and sandpit outside when the sun is shining. We aim to provide an environment where they can explore their imaginations and build lasting friendships with each other and our team members. We place huge emphasis on creating a welcoming atmosphere in our room, and loving your children the way God love us – unconditionally!
Many children transition to primary school when they turn five and we recognize that this can be a huge life shift for a child, and that adding a transition at church on top of that can be overwhelming. The Primary room is a lot larger than Preschool, with higher number and a larger age range of children, so we welcome your child to stay with us until they are six if that’s what they would like to do.
