Children and Family

We hope you find this site brimming with resources and helpful ideas to equip and encourage leaders, including parents, in their ministry with children and families.

The majority of resources from our previous site are still here – we’ve just rearranged the layout. The menu options are organised based on you – the site visitor.

  • If you are a parent, visit the “For Parents” page for a variety of parenting resources and to find a playgroup or a family friendly church.
  • If you want to encourage faith development, particularly through partnerships between the home and church – then click on Family Faith Development with resources for doing just that!
  • If you are a children and family ministry leader click into  that section for ideas and plenty of resources – for playgroups, all-age service, events and training and of course, our monthly newsletter, What’s Up.

We would encourage all Uniting Churches in SA to check that their children and family ministry information is current on their church websites and also in the “For Parents” section here. Are your playgroup details here and correct? Do you run other family friendly programs? Are they listed in the “find a family friendly church”?

We’d love to hear your feedback about the site and any resources that you would like to see here. Just send us an email (
