Michelle Aiken | Children’s Pastor
Head to the Connect Hub on a Sunday or chat to our Children’s Pastor Michelle Aiken for more info about Kid’s Ministry
At C3 Monash our Kids Team are passionate about encouraging children to know, love and trust Jesus as their friend and saviour. Our hope is that Kids Church becomes a much-anticipated, favourite part of their week!
At our Sunday morning service, children begin in ‘big church’, joining their family for prayer and worship, before heading out to their respective age groups for a full program experience.
For our walkers to pre-schoolers we have a well-equipped Crèche facility with fun-filled indoor and outdoor play spaces. We sing, dance, play, create, share a story and have a morning tea break. You are welcome to stay, or go back into the main service, assured that your little one will be well-cared for by our fabulous team.
Our primary-school-aged kids are grouped into juniors (Kindergarten to Year 2) and seniors (Years 3 – 6) and are treated to a session which includes: games, team challenges, art and craft, creative play, drama, media and music to ensure our Bible-based lessons are fun, engaging and relevant.
Kids Church is open for children aged 1 (once they are walking) to Year 6 and operates for the entire duration of the PM service. Children are offered a variety of fun activities to choose from, followed by a time of worship, a short message, games and dinner! (Yes, we feed your child/ren for free!)
For your peace of mind, all of our children’s programs are covered by C3 Church Monash’s comprehensive Child & Vulnerable Person’s Safety Policy & Procedures. Our team members all hold a current Working With Vulnerable People Card, ensuring a background check and registration, in accordance with State and Territory Guidelines.

Our Young Adults Team gets it. Life happens, and often it feels like all at once!

The good news; we don’t need to go it alone, Jesus wants to be part of the journey and so do we. Come and get involved in the Young Adults community here at C3 Monash, get connected and let’s do life together.
Fun, relaxed and always a little different. Young Adult socials are the perfect way to meet people, build relationships and just hang out.

Next After Party – 7th October
For me attending church has always been a big part of my life, but I never found myself getting involved or planted in a church, I just coasted on by. But when I moved to the area (away from home for the first time), I knew I had to find a church and make it my home. When I drove past C3 Monash, I felt the ‘Pull’ on my heart to try it out, and I’m so thankful that I did!
When I moved here I knew no-one, and as I was just starting my first year as a teacher, it was very challenging. But at church I received prayer, I heard some encouraging preaching, and I joined a connect group which helped me to meet new people.
I had never felt more welcome in a church, and I instantly knew this was where I was meant to be. I’ve never been better and happier, serving in kids ministry and doing life with many great friends in my new Church home.
I started thinking about going to church long before I actually went. I got invited by a work colleague and went along not really knowing what to expect. When I got there I was so overwhelmed by how kind and welcoming everyone was. I spoke to so many people and I could tell they were genuinely interested in getting to know me.
I started going on a regular basis and made some amazing friends who have helped me through some of the hardest times of my life.
I always have such an amazing encounter with God every time I walk through the doors. My life has definitely been changed for the better and I know there is nowhere else I’d rather be!
Men everywhere want to know how to do life and how to do it well. They want to know how to best manage busy lives and juggle the ever-increasing responsibilities and demands being placed on them. The REALMEN Ministry recognises that there are different seasons in a man’s life that he needs to understand and be prepared for. He also needs to be equipped for success. The mission of REALMEN is to connect Men to Jesus, and encourage an active involvement in the life of C3 Monash, and other men.
We take part in an annual REALMEN ACT/Southern NSW Gathering alongside other C3 churches in the region and we are active supporters of the REALMEN Sydney Conference (founder and director of REALMEN is Ps Greg French at C3 Church Oxford Falls) each year.
WHAT IS THE REALMEN RETREAT?
After the success of the first ever Realmen Retreat in 2017, this year the men’s ministry is once again setting off for another awesome 24 hours of scripture, powerful worship, crazy (bordering on dangerous) games, food, coffee and the opportunity to meet with God.
This overnight gathering is held at the good old Merroo Christian Centre. Merroo is about an hour out of Sydney amongst the foothills of the Blue Mountains. There is nothing quite like getting out of the hustle and bustle of Sydney, pressing pause on the background noise and getting refreshed and energised as you hear powerful messages from men that have gone before you. Fathers + sons + brothers – From highschool age and up – all are welcome.
Everywomen is a ministry and a movement, running for more than 10 years, designed to support and encourage women as they build every aspect of their lives, from families and friendships, to dreams and careers.
Our heart is to see everywoman connected, experiencing personal growth, fruitful in God’s House and reaching into the hearts and lives of others through the deepest expression of charity – love – in Christ/of Christ/through Christ.
We pray that through our bi monthly Portrait nights, our combined ACT/Southern NSW Everywoman Gathering and the Everywomen Sydney Conference you will “…use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows.” Galatians 5:13 MSG
