YOUTH & CHILDREN @ OAKLEIGH ANGLICAN CHURCH
FRIDAY NIGHT FUN!
Friday night fun is all about providing an environment where children and youth can build healthy relationships, strong values and explore faith - all while still having fun!
We run two separate age appropriate programs that come together for a shared meal and community.
4.30-6pm: GO WILD: OAC STYLE Go Wild is our new childrens program for Grades 1-4. This program aims to build healthy relationships and develop strong values. The values taught in Go Wild are Christian values from the Bible and include things like: trustworthiness, respect, cooperation, responsibility, kindness and forgiveness. We aim to encourage these through fun activities like drama, craft, role play, story telling and awesome games!
6-8pm: MUCKRAKERS Muckrakers runs on Friday nights and is for kids in year 5 to year 8 at school. This group is focused on community building with a small teaching component. Like the name Muckrakers seeks to expose the lies that are present within society and critique them with biblical ideas. This is a great group for kids who want to explore their faith or aren't sure if they even have a faith!
Cost for both programs is $5 and includes dinner.
Both programs are held on our Holy Trinity Site, 812 Warrigal Rd, East Malvern 3145
During our 10.30am Service we provide both a children's and youth program while the sermon and prayers are held. These programs provide an opportunity to develop an understanding of God, a relationship with Him and with peers.
CHIMPSChimps is our Sunday school children's program which is part of the 10.30am service, while the sermon and prayers are held. This is vibrant group aims to engage children from 3 year olds to grade 5 to understand Christ through engaging teaching and craft activities.
JC/DCJC/DC is a Drama group for grade 5 – year 10 which is part of the 10:30am Service while the sermon and prayers are held. This group aims to engage youth with the Bible in a very dramatic way. It runs on a 4 week cycle with its culmination being performed at the 10:30 service.
Sunday afternoon is all about the older youth:
CHRIST RISEN AND NOW KINGChrist Risen and Now King or CRANK caters for the older kids that are too old to attend Muckrakers. Year 9 to young adult is the normal age for a Crank group. The focus of the group is far more in depth teaching (1 Hour) with a meal and hang out time. CRANK runs every Sunday afternoon in the school term from 4.30pm – 6.30pm at Oakleigh Anglican Church, Holy Trinity Site.
