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.

Holiday Club

Kids Holiday Club is a Bible-based holiday program in the July School Holidays for kids in Kindy to Year 6. This year we are running away with the CIRCUS and we'd love to have you along! 


The dates are 17-19 and 21 July. 

Registration is open, and you can sign up here.


If you have any questions, contact holidayclub@stmattsmanly.org.au

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.
