Meets on Sunday mornings during our 10.00am service.
Each Sunday sees our Children’s ministries leader, Mary-Jane DuToit and her team inspiring children from creche to primary school ages. Each event is designed to build good biblical foundations for our children while being fun and engaging through the use of stories, videos, crafts and workbooks.
“MJ” also coordinates the church’s relationship with The Ark early childhood center and the SPACE program for new mums and follows up children who come to the church for Baptism.

Crèche is for children 0-4 years of age. It runs every School term Sunday during the 10am service.
Because Holy Trinity operates a professional Child Care centre at the rear of the main facility, we have an ideal location for very young children to play and interact safely under the supervision of selected adults and helpers. Children are welcome to stay with you in church. We ask that they stay under your control and not be allowed to run around the buildings. Quiet child noise is fine. There is a glassed, soundproofed parents room with an audio feed at the rear of the auditorium.
Each week, parents and caregivers bring their children for a thirty-minute session of music, rhyme, movement, listening and dance. The focus is on having fun together. It is important that adults participate in the session, because this encourages the children to enter into the actions and singing.
Morning tea is snack time for everyone. This is a chance for children and adults to build friendships and for the Mainly Music team to offer support to anyone needing it.

SPACE is mainly for parents with newborn babies. SPACE stands for Supporting Parents Alongside Children’s Education.Sessions are held over 3 to 4 terms in a very relaxed, baby friendly atmosphere. At SPACE, we believe that you, as the child’s parent, are the best and most important educator of your child.
Through a quality programme of discussions and information sharing, play, music and books, we aim to arm you with the skills to give you and your child the best start together. SPACE is designed as a special time for you and your newborn, so if you have toddlers, they will need to be cared for elsewhere.
Cost: Just $20.00 per child per term to register, and $40.00 per child per term attendance. To learn more about SPACE session times, please visit the Holy Trinity Tauranga website and click on SPACE, and for more general info about SPACE: www.space.org.nz
