Kids work

Vision
We love and value kids of all ages because of God’s great love for them! Redeemer kids work aims to be a place where kids have fun, learn to love Jesus and build great friendships with each other.

Sunday kids programmes
On a Sunday morning we run 5 kids programmes for various age groups. When you come in to the Nieuwe Kerk, you will see our kids registration desk just inside the entrance. Our kids workers will help you register your children in the right age group and explain when and where to drop off your kids. Feel free to ask any questions! We would love to answer them for you.
Please also see our Sick Policy.

Catherine comes from South Africa and leads the Kids Ministry along with her husband Pete. They have two kids of their own and are passionate about growing God’s Kingdom within the younger generation. In her spare time she can be found in her art room.

Sprouts (0-1 year olds)

We believe that God loves kids so much! In Sprouts we aim for creating a safe, peaceful, fun and challenging playground. We carry out the Redeemer vision by singing songs, reading easy Bible stories, saying positive words and praying for the babies and toddlers. Of course we also take care of the babies’ basic needs and there is a comfortable space for moms who are still feeding babies.

Confetti (2-3 year olds)

In Confetti, we want our toddlers to have fun and learn about Jesus each Sunday morning. As they hear Bible stories, make crafts, eat snacks, sing songs and just have time to play together, we would love for them to encounter God’s love and understand more about the Gospel.

Explorers (4-5 year olds)

We follow a simple and engaging programme in this age group to help the toddlers learn more about Jesus. Our hope is that through listening to Bible stories, making crafts, singing songs and playing games, they will have lots of fun and get to know what the Gospel is all about at the same.

Funtastic (6-8 year olds)

Funtastic is a great place for kids to have fun, learn about Jesus, and enjoy getting creative. There will typically be a time of listening to a story, actively responding to the story (questions, groupwork, crafts, etc), having juice and a snack, playing games, and praying together.

Funtastic also has activities outside of a Sunday morning where leaders open their homes for holiday parties and fun social events.

Redeemer Trailblazers (9-11 year olds)

Trailblazers is a programme for children from the ages 9-12 that encourages them to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.

Meeting on a weekly basis during the service, we explore Bible stories, crafts, music, prayer and verses together. One Sunday a month, we organize a Trailblazers on the Road (TOR) trip to various locations for a time of fun, games and learning!
