Welcome & About

Welcome to Westside Kids


This is where you will find out all the information you need to know about the Westside Kids ministry.

During this unprecedented time, worshiping together as a family is one of the most spiritually significant and influential things you can do. At this time, kids are welcome to attend the Sunday gathering with their family in one of our authorized gathering zones. Your child(ren) must be registered along with all other members of the family. 

We see have seen this time become a great opportunity for parents to grow as spiritual leaders and teachers in the home. Here are ways that we want to come alongside parents in efforts to see both them and children connect with God and together, experience the transforming power of the gospel:

The PURPOSE

We exist to see our kids know Jesus and make Him known.

“And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”


JOHN 17:3
Everything we do at Westside is centred on making Jesus known. Christ’s great commission is for His disciples to go out and make disciples (Matthew 28:18-19). Our purpose and desire is to make disciples of Jesus that will make disciples in their communities which will make disciples - well you get the idea, and this includes our kids ministry. Everything in our curriculum aims to make Jesus known in some way, and we look forward to partnering with you as parents, so that the young people in our church will grow as Jesus did “in wisdom and in stature and in favour with both God and man” - Luke 2:52.
“…in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you…”


1 KINGS 8:43

The VISION

Our vision for the kids of Westside is that through the efforts of their parents, the kids ministry leaders, others within the church body and most of all, the work of the Holy Spirit, they will:

  • Grow in Christ and in spiritual maturity
  • Be firmly established in faith and doctrine
  • Discover, develop and fruitfully use their gifts
  • Passionately embrace and pursue a God-centred vision for their lives
  • Meaningfully engage in worship, study, prayer and ministry
  • Apply a robust and biblical vision for manhood and womanhood
  • Live courageously in the world even under pressure to conform
  • Thoughtfully and effectively engage the culture for the sake of the gospel
  • Be Christ-exalting, mission-minded, soul-winning, justice-pursuing, God-fearing, Christ-treasuring, joyfully self-forgetting, passion-spreading, spiritually fruitful men and women who are devoted to spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all people through Jesus Christ
