Kids Friendly

We, at St.Margaret’s are certified as a Kids’ Friendly church by constantly reviewing our children’s ministry and encouraging the whole congregation to be intentional Kids Friendly to welcome, nurture and empower children.

Kids Friendly is the children’s ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. Our church recognises the vital contribution children and families make to healthy congregations and we, at St.Margaret’s enjoy the resources and inspiration of the Kids Friendly Coaches.
