Kids & Youth

Kids Church

Kids Church is a time of fun as we get to know others and learn about God. The children are taught by an enthusiastic team of leaders. They learn about God and his son Jesus from the Bible through a variety of songs, games, activities and lessons. The bible based message is in terms that are understandable for their age group.

Kids Church is divided into the following groups:

Crèche: 0-3 year olds
Preschool: 3-5 year olds (must be toilet trained)
Treasure Chest: K – Year 2
Primary Challenge: Years 3-6
High School Bible Study: Years 7-12


Playtime meets on Wednesday and Thursday of every week during the school terms, 10am-12pm.

We aim to fulfill the playtime principles of helping families understand the value of learning and playing together, providing an opportunity for parents of young children to meet each other, and helping young children to learn to share and play together.

Each week members of Parkes Baptist Church are in attendance at Playtime. These people are available to help you with your children and if required, be happy to talk to you about any problems or questions you have about God and life’s issues.

We would be very happy to welcome you and your family to our church services or activities during the week.

Ignite Youth is a weekly gathering of high schoolers, during school term. We meet on Friday nights, from 7pm-9pm, in the church hall. On a typical night we play games, snack on food, and study the bible, but once or twice a term we adventure beyond the church grounds for an outing or special event, like the pool, or KYCK (Katoomba Youth Conference).

Ephesians 5:8
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light

If you are, or know, a high schooler who might like to join us, we would love to hear from you! The Ignite Co-ordinators are Jarod & Symone Lee, and you can reach us at
