Picton Baptist Church

Here to see lives changed by Jesus.


We're here to see children's and families' lives changed by Jesus


Children are  a valued part of our  church family at Picton Baptist.


Children  of all ages meet  with the rest of the church  for the  first  part of our worship service , and are encouraged  to be part of all we do together. Having people of all ages together to sing and worship  is a special dynamic.


During the sermon  children of primary school age are welcome at                                                                             

Impact takes place in the room at the end of the church hall. Through games, stories, drama and  small group times we explore together what the Bible teaches about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and  what that means  today in the life of 5-11 year olds.


Our heart is for children to not just know about God, but to know  God.


This  term at  Impact  we are  exploring two main themes : God our healer  (following the church teaching/home group theme) and ‘standing up for what is right’(based on Daniel). text, images, and other content

Holiday Programmes

Picton Baptist runs holiday programmes for  primary school children aged 5-9 years  in the April and October school holidays.  The programmes run for 4 mornings (9:30 -12 noon)  usually in the first week of the holidays.

Each programme is  built around a theme and includes lots of games and challenges, craft  and stories from the Bible that tie into the theme. There is always lots of fun, and a great sense of community  hanging out together and discovering more about  God.


We are committed to providing an environment that is welcoming, safe and encouraging for children. Numbers are limited to ensure there is one leader for every 4 children.

No charge is made for the programme, but a donation of fruit towards morning tea is always appreciated.


Our next programme is:
