Hey Kids, have fun
Hi there, do you enjoy playing games? We've looked for some really good online games - ones we think you will enjoy, and your mum and dad won't mind you playing (but make sure you ask them first!).
Some of these sites have Christian content, and others are just good, clean fun.

Things adults should know:
It does pay to take great care on-line, as there is some extremely dangerous and damaging things on the internet, however we recommend adopting an attitude of careful exploration. Your children are growing up in an electronic world, increasingly connected to the internet. They need training in how to filter what is good and healthy, from what is not.
Here are some good guidelines to teach your child about personal safety online:
- Never give out personal information online. Your real name, age, where you live, phone number or school.
- Never share your password with anyone, except your parents. Someone else might use your password and pretend to be you.
- If someone does or says anything online to make you feel uncomfortable, tell your parent or guardian straight away.
- Choose a nickname that doesn't give away your real name, or location.
We've reviewed and sourced all the games and sites recommended or promoted here, and if you know of others that are good and wholesome too, please drop us a line (see contacts).
With social networking so popular among people of all ages, if you want your child to have a safe introduction to this, then we recommend Club Penguin. This site is actively monitored by InterPol and is considered very safe for your child.
Chapel Hill Community Church has a long and proud tradition of providing services for children of all ages.
- Our core ministries/services to the community are in the area of early childhood, being the kindergarten, a Play Group Monday-Wednesday mornings, and a Mainly Music session on Thursday morning.
- During our main Sunday worship services we also run a creche for pre-schoolers, a children's church we call Overflow Kids, and a session for intermediate-age youth called Livewire (See our "Youth" section for what we offer to our teenagers).
- More than that though, we also want to partner with each home to live the faith 24/7. Faith is not something we spell 'Sunday morning', and Christianity is not simply showing up for a particular event or programme. It's a whole-of-life approach to living, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. For that reason, we recognise the people who are the best teachers, the best mentors, the best prayers, the best worship leaders, the best supporters of children are their parents. Chapel Hill wants to be there to help you realise the dream of having children growing up strong and committed in Christ.
