Activities for Children
The Children and Family Ministry is an integral part of the Ministry at Karori Anglican. We provide activities where children and their families can experience God have fun, make friends, play games, have food, worship, pray, learn and to share our love of God.

Jesus took the children in his arms, put his hand on them and blessed them Lord, you look at me and know me, Every step I take, you show me
Know me, lead me, guide my way Through every hour of the day,
For all my life, in all I do, Let me always be with you.
BASED ON PSALM 139
Jesus took the children in his arms, put his hand on them and blessed them
Lord, you look at me and know me, Every step I take, you show me
