Children are valued because they are children of God, central to God's covenant with His people. At NYCBC, we believe that Children’s Ministry is important not just for the future of our church, but for the Kingdom of God. We see children as who they are, as growing spiritual beings with full personhood and absolute individuality. With the help of parents, volunteers and pastoral staff, our ministry team works hard to walk with our children, to foster an environment for nurturing their faith formation and character development. Apart from regular Sunday ministry, we offer various multi-format events to support our children's life journey. All this aims to offer a relevant context for children to understand the work of God in their lives. The following are highlights of our regularly scheduled activities.
New School Year
Starting September 2, all grade school children attending Sunday ministry will start a new school year, moving to their new grade and meeting new teachers
Meet and Greet / Open House
An open house to let parents and volunteers meet will be held in November. Date to be announced.
Programs and Activities
Vacation Bible School
The Vacation Bible School runs in July and August each year. The goal of the VBS is to provide a place to share with kids and parents the Gospel, help them get to know the Good News of Jesus, at the same time encourage character development and faith nurturing of kids' amidst all the fun and activities in the camp. Registration typically starts in March each year. Welcome children of Grade 1-6 to register. We also offer a leadership training program for believing teenagers in Gr 7 and 8 - the Counselor In Training (CIT) program.

This is a mom & tot program that is held every 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, from 9:30am to 11:00am. It aims to create a platform for parents of 0-3 years children to connect through activities and play. We promote concepts of early childhood development, offer support and encouragement to families.
Fall Fun Festival
Every year on October 31, all children with their families are welcome to our annual carnival event held on Halloween evening, with creative games, unstoppable fun activities, a stunning photo booth and irresistible treats. We invite all members of our community to celebrate the salvation accomplished by Christ instead of the mythic festival of the dark.
