Families at Barneys

Barneys Kids

Barneys runs a series of kids programs parallel to our 10am Sunday morning service. Barneys Kids gives children the opportunity to learn about Jesus and grow together in faith, in a fun and safe environment. All children start in the service together with their parent(s) or caregivers, enjoying fellowship together.

Email office@barneys.org.au for more information, any questions, or if you’re unsure which program your child should attend.

Pre school

Rockpool (6 months – 2 year olds)

Rockpool is for babies aged 6 months (able to sit up) to 2 years. Rockpool children enjoy free play, songs, and have morning tea together (provided by parents).

Pippies (2 year olds)

Pippies is a special program run for 2 year olds to provide them with a little bit more structure and opportunity to learn simple truths about God through free play, Bible stories and craft. Pippies children share a snack together (provided by parents).

Barniccles (3 year olds)

Barniccles is a pre-school program for children from 3 years old. The children enjoy a variety of activities, including free play, games, Bible stories and craft. The children share morning tea together (provided by parents).

School Years K-7

Children in years K-7 meet in small groups divided by school years. They enjoy large group games, learning about Jesus in both large group and small group settings, craft activities and special projects. Morning tea is shared with the adults after the service.

FMG (Friday Morning Group)

Friday Morning Group is a place where mums of young children are encouraged through the word of God and each other.

FMG has been running at Barneys for over 20 years. We are not a playgroup and we’re not a traditional bible study group either!

At FMG we aim to be biblical, practical and real. We do this by building friendships, opening God’s word, and sharing advice and encouragement- over good coffee and a delicious morning tea!

We meet at Barneys every Friday from 10am to 12noon during school terms.

A kids program, staffed by paid and volunteer carers, is available for children who are not yet attending school. The cost is $60 per term per family. We do not want financial stresses to stop mums and their kids from coming so please chat with us about options if you’re concerned.

Email Stef Fox or call on 9211 3496 for more information, or to let us know you’re coming!

Child Protection

Barneys is committed to the safety of children who attend our programs. All Barneys Kids leaders complete Child Protection training through Anglican Youthworks, and all have a current NSW Working With Children Check.
