Families & Children

Anglican Parish of Christ Church Essendon warmly welcomes all families & children. There is a safe, comfortable space at the back of the church with activities for the children including books and toys. Families can participate in the worship service while the children remain occupied. All children are encouraged to go to approach the altar for a blessing during communion time.

Christ Church Essendon is a child safe church. We have zero tolerance of any behaviours that may harm children and vulnerable individuals. We strictly adhere to the safe ministry clearance requirements of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne and it is mandatory for all clergy and lay workers (including office bearers and volunteers) to obtain clearance for safe ministry from Kooyoora.
