Children and Youth

At WPBC, we want to create an environment of belonging and the opportunity to experience a personal relationship with God for children, youth and families. So much so that this is one of our strategic focus areas!

Our church services are interactive and aim to engage folks of all ages. We have a families area with tables and chairs where kids can enjoy colouring, crafts and toys appropriate for different ages. Kids and young people can be involved in many aspects of the service, including singing, bible reading and all-age interactive activities. For the second half of the service, preschool and primary school aged children can join Explorers (see below). Some of our youth are part of the Inner North Youth Group.

Explorer's is our Sunday morning program for children aged 4-12 years. Kids younger than 4 years are welcome to join with an accompanying adult.

At Explorer's, we get to know each other and our amazing God with games, fun songs, and crafts. We are also currently working through an Australian video curriculum called Love Out Loud!. Click the image below to learn more.

Say hi to some of our friendly Explorers leaders and helpers!


Child Safety

We take child safety very seriously; all leaders and helpers in our kids program must be well-known to us, have a current Working With Children Check, and sign our Code of Conduct annually. Leaders undergo screening and undertake safe church training every 4 years. For more information on our Safe Church Policy, click here.

We ask that parents fill out an enrolment form each year. If you are just visiting and your children would like to join Explorer's, there is a shorter visitor form.

We adhere to the Victorian Child Safe Standards:
