Programmes during School Terms
Sunday Kids operates throughout the school term during the 9.30 am Sunday worship service and caters for children aged 3 years to Grade 6.
We follow a wonderful curriculum that has take-home sheets for the children and their families to talk over during the week.
We sing, collect an offering, pray and talk about God and life issues in a fun and creative way. The children then go off to their age appropriate classes for the remainder of the time. Learning activities include Bible stories, games and craft to reinforce the lesson
For any children who are in church, activity sheets and pencils are available from the Information desk in the foyer.
Th Child Care Lounge is accessed from the Worship Centre foyer, just on your right as you enter the building from the carpark.

SONIC (Spreading One Name In Caloundra) is a holiday programme that is held in the first week in January by Scripture Union’s Caloundra Beach Mission. SONIC use the church facilities. This is a fun time for children from Prep to Grade 6 from 2.30pm till 5pm with craft, games, bible stories and more. At the same time, parents can relax and socialize in the SONIC CAFÉ over cake and coffee.

School Chaplaincy is a Scripture Union ministry that places Chaplains in Primary and High Schools across Australia.
School Chaplains respect the range of christian views, affiliations, and cultural traditions in the school community and are approachable by both students and staff of all faiths.
They are a safe person for young people to connect with at school and provide a listening ear, caring presence and a message of hope. They care for students who struggle with issues that include; family problems, confused relationships, peer pressure, low self esteem, bullying, friendship difficulties, depression, suicide, drug and alcohol issues and emotional abuse.
Chaplains run positive and fun activities for students in and out of school, and foster a caring school environment that is supported by partners such as local churches, businesses and community organisations. These positive and healthy relationships help students to face issues, provide hope, meaning and purpose.
The Chaplaincy programme is voluntary and student participation requires consent from parents or caregivers.
The chaplaincy programmes at Sunshine Coast schools are well regarded by school staff and parents.
