Our Kids

At St Matthews we want kids to be free to learn about Jesus from the Bible and grow in their love for Him in a safe and supportive environment.

Kids Church

Kids Church runs during both our 10am and 5pm family services with age-appropriate programs for children from 12 months to old up to Year 6.


We also have a Parents Room available for parents who wish to look after their children while still running into our service.

Mini Matts

Mini Matts is a Christian playgroup that provides a fun and nurturing place for kids under 5 and their parents and carers.


Mini Matts runs on Monday and Tuesday mornings from 9:45am to 11am during the school term.  

School Scripture (SRE)

St Matthews coordinates General Scripture (SRE) at Manly Village Public School. Children can learn about Christian from a faith-based perspective in these opt-in classes.

Holiday Club

Kids Holiday Club is a Bible-based holiday program in the October School Holidays for kids in Kindy to Year 6. Each year we have a different theme through which we learn more about God, his world and his Son Jesus.
