Kids & Youth

God welcomes people of all ages into his family, and calls us to trust him like little children trust a good father. Because we’ve experienced the love of God in Jesus, we care about teaching, serving and leading kids & youth. We want everyone to know God through Jesus and to grow in understanding of how to live for him. We’re committed as a church to inter-generational ministry where people share the gospel and their lives with one another.

KIDS & YOUTH

SRE

Fairy Meadow Anglican coordinates the teaching of Special Religious Education (“scripture”) in a number of our local primary schools (Fairy Meadow, Balgownie, Pleasant Heights, Mt Ousley). All SRE teachers are trained, accredited and assessed each year via the Youthworks arm of the Sydney Diocese.

Research has shown that SRE contributes to students’ wholistic education as it nurtures their spiritual wellbeing. For more information about the SRE curriculum used in these schools, you can visit whysre.com.au.

Child Protection

Fairy Meadow Anglican Church, as part of the Anglican Church Diocese of Sydney, is committed to the physical, emotional and spiritual welfare and safety of all people, particularly within its own community.

All Fairy Meadow Anglican Kids and Youth leaders have a current NSW Working with Children Check, and all are required to complete Safe Ministry training through the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.
