Christian Playgroup Network
AYCF Ministries Brisbane proudly supports the CPN and recommends its resources. The network is intended to assist Playgroups which are explicitly Christian in their focus, as well as those which simply meet on Church premises, but which have the potential to develop as ministry opportunities.
Qld Children’s Ministry Network
The QCMN is essentially a multi-denominational peak body for Christian Children’s Ministry in Queensland. The QCMN runs a series of large and small-scale activities, including the huge “Ignite Expo” Children’s Ministry Conferences (www.igniteexpo.org.au) and Kids Games, often in partnership with Scripture Union Queensland.
The Roscoe Library, Milton
The Roscoe Library has a wealth of resources available for free to any Anglican parishioners who become library members (no charge). These include children’s picture books, Messy Church resource books, Sunday School curriculum examples or sets, and much, much more. Why not come in and see for yourself?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Christian formation process for children aged 3 to 12 years, in which they experience and form an authentic, faithful relationship with God. The Catechesis is grounded in scriptural and liturgical study framed by Maria Montessori’s principles of education. This allows children to hear the Gospel through the use of sensorial rich materials. The children are free to work with these materials that represent essential proclamations of the Christian message.
“Started in 1990, mainly music is a fun music group for parents or primary care givers to enjoy together with their young child. Throughout the morning, children develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialize with others. Each mainly music is associated with and is run by volunteers from a local church. Children are introduced to music, creativity and more, plus families are given a chance to think about the God-part of life. Amazing to think that all this can be achieved in a loving, shared family environment.”
Otherwise, ask your local parish if they offer it.
