Our philosophy at Upper Room Kids is simple: we are here to train a generation of world missional leaders who, no matter what sphere of life they may enter, know their faith, live their faith, proclaim their faith, and teach others how to take “the leap of faith.” We believe learning best occurs in a context rich in fun and swimming with laughter and enjoyment. God made kids for these things!

But Upper Room Kids is not just a place to drop off children to run off to some adult Christian activity; it is far more than that. It is a training ground for life, where your children will be transformed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s Holy Spirit. It is a place to learn how to worship; pray; read the Word; teach it to others; lead; practice truth; mature in the virtues of faith, hope and love; pursue holiness in a way kids can understand; and to practice the disciplines of standing one’s ground in world hostile to messages of truth, faith, and family.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matt 19:14

Our Aim

Part of the radical distinctive of Upper Room Kids is that at every stage of life older children learn to mentor and take care of younger children and so on through the whole youth cycle. We are committed to our kids, believe they are a blessing to the whole church community straight from God’s hands, and want to see them flourish as leaders in the world where Jesus Christ is so often not named.

We take our kids ministry seriously! Upper Room kids is a center for excellence in raising children in the Christian faith and producing a community of missionary witnesses. So come take the “leap of faith” with us! Email kids@upperroom.org.nz for more info.
