kids are important to us
Hi! I'm Melanie and very happy to be working with children and families here at Knox church. I was brought up in Hastings, Was in the RNZAF and worked in offices in Auckland for nearly 20 years. I got saved in 2007 although the seed of the gospel was sown in me at primary school. I've traveled a lot around the world and did a missions trip to Uganda in 2014. I'm now at EIT studying education and social sciences. In this role I hope to establish good relationships with the kids and families and help them grow in their knowledge of The Lord, His Word and His Kingdom and have fun while doing it! And that's how I've found it so far so no doubt the Lord will take us from glory to glory!
As a worshiping community we are aiming to give kids a positive experience of church life, to have them grow to see the Church as their extended family and to be nurtured in their faith in Jesus. As well as being involved in our K'nect services Melanie heads up our Sunday morning program which includes kids in the church service and gives them time to ask questions, do activities, and have fun to re-enforce their learning
