Children are a wonderful blessing from God. Parents, alongside a healthy church life provide the means to nurture and encourage them on their lifelong journey with God.

Our Desire:
The desire for the City Edge Children’s ministry is to make disciples for Jesus that will count for Him throughout their whole life. To work with the parents and the church community to nurture, care and inspire the children to be all they can be in Christ.

Babies and toddlers – 0 to 4yrs
We believe that the little kids are as much a part of the church family as the grown ups. A bit of noise is part of family life! For this reason, we encourage parents to stay in the meeting with their children. We have a separate nursing and baby change room for nursing mums as part of our meeting room. We also provide an area and some toys in the meeting room for parents with young children.

Little Edgers – 4 to 10yrs
We have a children’s program for kids aged 4-10yrs each Sunday that encourages them to understand the “big” picture of the way God has revealed Himself to us in the scriptures. This is done creatively through the use of vivid images and craft that help to reinforce foundational learning and a bible based worldview. We are currently using the Kids Sunday School curriculum that cleverly integrates Church and Home. For further details, contact Ian on 0490 946 655

Young Adults
The Young Adults meet informally for fellowship and activities that help build them spiritually with God and relationally with each other. For further details, contact John 0425 759 918 or Harley 0438 066 215

Connect Groups
Connect Groups alternate every second week with our Prayer during Victorian school terms. They are relaxed and informal with each one including a ‘Bring n Share’ meal, bible study and prayer. For further details, contact Ian on 0490 946 655 and check our calendar for dates:

City Edge comes together to pray every second Wednesday night during Victorian school terms, alternating with our Home Groups.

We meet from 7:30 to 8:30pm and it is a time for the whole church to come together and pray intentionally for other churches in our city, nation and around the world. We also pray for those who lead our state and country as well as any special needs locally and globally where people have been impacted by natural disasters, wars, famines or wherever there is need.

We also pray weekly at our Sunday gatherings at 10am and at this time we focus on praying for our local fellowship and for  our visitors. For further details or prayer requests txt Ian on 0490 946 655

Acts 6:4 (ESV) — But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.

1 Timothy 2:1-4 (ESV)
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth

Ministry of the Word
The preaching of the Bible, (the word or the word of God) is vitally important to the church.  Our preaching and teaching aims to be Bible-centred with scripture being displayed on the screen for people to follow along with.  A sample of some of our recent messages are posted here in manuscript form: City Edge messages.

Acts 6:4 (ESV) But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.

2 Timothy 4:1–4 (ESV)1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
