Warragul is a small rural town situated 1.5 hours by car or train from the CBD; it is in a rapid growth corridor; current growth is primarily young families (including city commuters) and retirees. 20+ church denominations are represented in the town, of which WAC with a weekly attendance of around 70-120 is the third largest.
Purpose To co-ordinate our children’s program, assist with growing our youth program, and encourage involvement of children and youth in 9.45 am services, so that WAC provides a high standard of children’s and youth ministry for our families and newcomers. To ensure that proper risk assessment and safety protocols are observed, so that our young people are appropriately protected. To support volunteer leaders, so that they make use of their gifts, grow in skillfulness, and flourish in their ministry.
