SHOUT KIDS

Shout Kids is a dynamic and God-inspired kids conference for children of all ages which runs alongside the main sessions of Shout 2019 - ‘INTO ALL THE WORLD’. 

In line with the conference theme, this year our children will be learning about evangelism and taking the gospel to the world through teaching from the book of Acts. Through quality teaching, our prayer is to see every child partner with the mission of Jesus Christ, capturing the urgency of seeing his love and salvation message infiltrate every sphere of influence across the globe.

What to expect?

We do everything with passion, lots of laughs and a good sense of adventure!

Children will take part in epic praise partiesworship and prayer - cultivating an atmosphere where children can feel safe to express their faith and encounter Jesus is our utmost priority.

In line with the conference theme, across the week, our children will compete in tribes, themed after some of the great continents of the world: Africa, South America, Europe and Asia.

Every service will also be packed with games, activities, crafts and exciting off-site trips!

Our schedule also includes an olympics day and an international party - with cultural food, dance and celebration galore!

What if my child doesn’t know anyone? 

Children are placed in groups of 10-20 (depending on age group) with their own group leader. Children are in the same group across the conference to ensure each and every child has the opportunity to make new friends and have fun together. The leaders are great at getting everyone involved, and make sure everyone is cared for.
