Childrens Ministries

At Camberwell Salvation Army we recognise the importance of investing in children. Our goal is to provide opportunities where kids have lots of fun, develop relationships with others and learn about God.

All leaders have been trained by The Salvation Army's Childsafe program, have Working With Children Check accreditation and a current Crimcheck.

First Steps

The First Steps Ministry is an effective way of keeping in touch with mothers and their babies in our church community through scheduled morning teas, outings, notice of activities, events and services parents can attend with their family.

Although most of our enrolled members have been dedicated at The Salvation Army, we warmly welcome those parents and babies who would like to make our church their spiritual home.
