Meets on Sunday mornings during our 10.00am service.
Each Sunday sees our Children’s ministries worker Yvonne Edwards, and her team, inspiring children from creche to primary school ages. Each event is designed to build good biblical foundations for our children while being fun and engaging through the use of stories, videos, crafts and workbooks.
Yvonne also coordinates the church’s relationship with The Ark early childhood center and the SPACE program for new mums and follows up children who come to the church for Baptism.
Crèche is for children 0-4 years of age. It runs every School term Sunday during the 10am service.
Because Holy Trinity operates a professional Child Care centre at the rear of the main facility, we have an ideal location for very young children to play and interact safely under the supervision of selected adults and helpers. Children are welcome to stay with you in church. We ask that they stay under your control and not be allowed to run around the buildings. Quiet child noise is fine. There is a glassed, soundproofed parents room with an audio feed at the rear of the auditorium.
Each week, parents and caregivers bring their children for a thirty-minute session of music, rhyme, movement, listening and dance. The focus is on having fun together. It is important that adults participate in the session, because this encourages the children to enter into the actions and singing.
Morning tea is snack time for everyone. This is a chance for children and adults to build friendships and for the Mainly Music team to offer support to anyone needing it.

The Team @ Space
SPACE for you and your baby is a 40-week programme for parents with young babies.
At SPACE for you and your baby, we believe that you as the child’s parent, are the best and most important educator of your child. Our sessions are run in our Infant House in a very relaxed, baby friendly atmosphere.
Through a quality programme of discussions and information sharing, play, music and books, we aim to arm you with the skills to give you and your child the best start together. SPACE is designed as a special time for you and your newborn, so if you have toddlers, they will need to be cared for elsewhere.
Our fees are spread over the 40 week course to make it easier for families to pay.
An enrolment fee of $60 is due before your group starts. This is made up of Space NZ Trust’s $32 registration fee which will be taken when you make your online booking, the remaining $28 will be due the week before your group starts, payable directly to Space @ The Ark Holy Trinity.
Going forward payments of $40 are due on weeks 8, 18 and 28 of your course (your group facilitator will inform you when they are due).
For more general info about SPACE for you and your baby please visit www.space.org.nz.
We start new groups every 4-6 weeks throughout the year and upon receiving your registration we will contact you directly to confirm your booking. We also can place older babies in existing groups at times, as space permits. Please note: no personal visitors to the group without prior arrangement with facilitators (this is for health and safety/bodies in space compliance).
