Youth Ministries

RSC is strongly commited to including its youth.

RSC aims to ensure the youth see the relevance of God in their lives but also to grow in becoming leaders and promoters of the faith we hold so dear.

Jesus really did this well - Discipleship. You can call it by whatever name fits today's context: be it 'mentoring', 'coaching', or 'leadership development', the result should be the same. It's a process of taking people one step further in their journey of faith, from whatever stage you find them in. It's a process of investing in the lives of others in order to allow God to bring an increase.

Our Vision: To create a sense of cohesion between the various Children's & Youth ministries that ultimately produces, in our kids, real spiritual development and healthy, well-rounded, hearts and lives.

Kidz Club

At Rutland Street Church the provision of a children's ministry catering for children from 3 years of age through to school year six. Kidz Club generally leaves the main Sunday morning church service at about 10:30am and returns at the end. We start our morning with a short time of worship followed by a brief message and prayer before children disperse to their individual class for various activities. The aim is to provide an exciting, fun environment in which to encourage our young ones to learn and understand more about God and what He desires for their lives.
