Children's Programmes


A number of the larger Meetings have children's programmes. Auckland Meeting has programmed sessions on the first and third Sundays, and supervision for children on the other Sundays. Wellington has a programmed children's Meeting on third Sunday with a bring and share meal following. Christchurch Meeting has a children's programme every week, and a separate session for 9-14 year olds on second Sunday, with a shared lunch following.
A number of the Meetings are collaborating to share resources and ideas. Here are some of the resources which have been used by Children's Meetings around the country:
