Children & Young Adults
At Hillview Adventist Church it is our passion and vision to nurture, empower and equip our children & young adults for their lives ahead.
We focus on building rock solid faith foundations that support Biblical belief while kick-starting their own personal relationship with God. It is our desire that our little ones through to young adults know Him, encounter Him, adore Him and develop their own personal relationship with Him.
In our Children’s Sabbath Schools, Children (and parents) learn to develop this relationship with God and their faith foundations through themed programs and lesson story times where they are engaged in learning, singing and activities that enable them to hear it, see it, say it, feel it and put it into action.
Youth and young adults are a valued demographic of our church family. Our Youth and young adult ministry is designed to provide guidance and support to these members of our Faith Family as they seek to navigate through the most challenging parts of their development and seek to grow in their person walk with Christ.
Youth and young adults meet together to share and study the Bible finding relevance for the stages of their own life journeys (university / further study / exploring the workforce / relationships / stepping out on their own) We encourage their leadership, involvement and sharing as participants of our wider church family and functioning.
Children’s Sabbath school (Bible Study) classes run from 9:30am until 10:30am after which time we welcome all ages to join together in praise and worship and spiritual growth in the main church service. We encourage, support and value the involvement and perspective of our children and young adults in leading aspect of the main worship services.

Opportunities for our children and youth are further supported through our Adventurer and Pathfinder programs. These programs exist for children age 4 through to 16 and provide safe and supportive places for young people to challenge themselves, gain confidence and build healthy relationships.
For more information on these programs, please see the Adventurers / Pathfinders section of our website.
