We’re all about kids getting to know God in a real way, and learning about His love for them.


18 months to 3 years

Kidlets is our programme for our 18 month to 3 year olds and runs during our morning service.

Each week we have fun on the playground and in the sandpit, as well as lots of inside activities such as playdoh, lego, puzzles and blocks.  We also have an age appropriate Bible Story and activity, and morning tea as well. Our teams of workers are ready and waiting to care for your little ones in a friendly and fun atmosphere.

We are experts in crowd control, caring for kids, tasty treats and keeping up with our very energetic Kidlets!


4 to 5 years

Lil’K is an awesome programme for our 4 & 5 year olds during our morning service, where children learn about God, connect with other kids, and have fun all at the same time.

We have a programme designed to meet the needs of this age group. They have fun on the playground, play games, learn Bible stories, and do some awesome crafts. We also provide morning tea for them.

We have an awesome team of people who love children and provide a safe and caring environment for your kids. Your child is sure to enjoy themselves!

Kids Church

6 to 10 years

Kids Church for our 6 to 10 year olds kicks off with awesome activities – you can paint your nails, make a lego creation, play a board game, hula hoop, play basketball and much more.

During the programme our kids get to learn about and connect with God, participate in praise and worship, spend time in small groups doing theme related activities and playing some fun games.

Our heart for Kids Church is that every child would leave on a Sunday morning feeling loved and valued by us and by God.  We want this to be the best part of their week!

Kids Church runs during the morning service, and Fun Lounge runs during our evening service for children aged 6 to 12 years.

If you need more information about Kids Church, please don’t hesitate to call the church office or contact us.

Shalom Kindergarten

Shalom was established in 1984 as a community based Centre
and is a department of City Church Tauranga.

Shalom has developed into a Kindergarten with flexible hours serving families from the greater Tauranga area including Papamoa, Pyes Pa and Kaimais.

Learning is lots of fun at Shalom where children enjoy positive social interactions with adults and children, turn taking, loving boundaries, respect for themselves and others, trying new activities in our large natural outdoor setting and spacious purpose built inside areas.

Shalom encourages parent involvement and love it when parents and whanau come in to share their talents with the children. Click here to check out Shalom Kindergartens website.
