KIDGO is the children’s ministry of Victory Church. Our program runs at each of our Sunday services and caters for children from 1 year old through to Grade 5 at school.
Our goal at KIDGO is for every child to have tons of FUN as they connect with God and build friendships with one another! We do this by creating environments that are age-specific, catering to the developmental needs of kids so that they can engage in worship, hear a bible-based message and partake in activities that emphasis this month’s ‘Bottom Line’.
Our dream is getting to partner with you as parents to raise a generation that passionately LOVE God, LOVE Church and LOVE others.
Our Cubby House Rooms are all about building foundations that will last a lifetime. We want every child to grow up knowing that God loves them, made them and wants to know them personally! Through songs, stories, memory verses, crafts and activities our team tell the story of how God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to be our friend forever all in a safe, inviting, fun and friendly environment.
The school years are full of discovery! Our mission is to take kids on a journey each week to go deeper in who God is and who he has created them to be. Our program is packed full of high-energy praise & worship, interactive games, bible-based messages, KCGs (Kid Connect Groups) and heaps of FUN! Our KCGs are split into age groups so your child can go deeper into the message & make great friends.
Our chargers are our trailblazers and culture carriers! On Sunday nights we run a seperate leadership program specifically created for older primary students to go deeper in their faith, dream about their future, look at their purpose and prepare for their next season in youth. This program is all about teaching them values and skills which will equip them for life; how to read their bible, pray, serve and lead.
We always love meeting new friends here at Kidgo! When you arrive one of our connection team will greet you at the door and direct you towards our Kidgo check-in area. Look for the team in bright orange – you can’t miss them!
Whether you’re looking to call Victory Church home, or are just visiting for the day our team will ask for you to provide us with some basic information. Things like your contact number, allergies and any special needs are super important for us to know so that we can care for your family to the best of our ability.
Once your details have been entered into our system our team will print 2 stickers – a name label for your child and a parent pick-up label for you. Make sure you keep your parent label on you as you’ll need to hand it to our team at the end of the service for your child to be released back into your care.
Once all the paperwork is complete our team will show you to your child’s room and introduce you to the room leader (Cubby House kids) or KCG leader (Explorers) that will be looking after your child.
Register your family ahead of time by clicking the link below and let us know when you’ll be visiting.
This will speed up your registration process on the day and help us keep an eye out for you!
Our Kidgo Programs cater for babies from the age of 1, or when they start actively crawling and can be cared for by our team. For younger babies we have a beautifully furnished Parents Room, conveniently located between the auditorium and the restrooms with baby changing facilities. This space has a live feed of the service running at all times, feeding booth for breastfeeding mums, microwave facilities and a host who is there to help.
Safety of our children is a major priority. All leaders are required to obtain a Working with Children Check from the Department of Health Services Australia, have completed Victory Church’s Safe Environments Training and be able to provide personal references to ensure they are suitable to be working with children. Our leaders also receive ongoing training in relation to safety procedures concerning children. Our Kidgo team are all immensely passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of kids and helping connect them with Jesus. One of the greatest privileges for us as leaders in Kidgo is helping children respond to God’s great love for them.
In the unlikely event that your child requires your attention during the service (nappy change etc.) our check-in team will send you an SMS on the number you provide us with letting you know which child requires your attention and which room they are in.
We like to plan our program so that all activities are finished by the completion of the service, so please remember to sign your child out of their room as soon as possible. With our check in system, collecting your child is safe and simple, please bring your parent pick-up label with you to the room and give it to the room leader. If you would like someone else to collect your child for you ensure that they have the sticker, however children will not be released from Kidgo to anyone under 16 years of age.
If your child is unwell (ie: has a persistent cough/runny nose or temperature and/or has had diarrhoea in the last twenty four hours) we ask that you do not bring them into our program, so that we can prevent the illness from spreading to the other children and volunteers.
