Partnering with families to make disciples of the next generation
Family centred discipleship within the church family
We see the home as the primary place of discipleship for the next generation (Psa 78:1-8; Eph 6:1-4; Deut 6, Proverbs). The church family exists to equip and encourage the home family to disciple their kids. We recognise that every home looks different and that many homes are hurting. This is where the gift of 'church family' particularly comes to the fore and we count it a privilege to help such homes encounter Jesus in wisdom and love.
We exist to proclaim and display the gospel of Jesus in a faithful and engaging way so that our kids and youth are saved by Jesus and learn to become life-long disciples of Jesus who love, trust and obey him in all of life.
Within the Church Family
Whilst recognising the primary place of home discipleship, discipleship for all believers is something that ultimately takes place in the context of the local church. Therefore, the church must crucially play its part in making disciples of the next generation, that’s why Harvest Kids exists. We want our kids to grow up in a church family which lives out joyful, intentional and multigenerational discipleship (Titus 2).
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Every Sunday, all children (babies through Primary 7) are welcome to experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a faithful and engaging way so that young hearts and lives are changed.
The safety of your child is essential to us and this is reflected in our safeguarding policy and procedures. All our leaders are members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme which is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland.
We would love to see you and your family visit Harvest Kids at Harvest Ayr. Join the fun and experience a place where kids meet Jesus on their level as they are taught God's word, memorise it, worship God in song and get involved in fun games and activities.
