KUCA – Sunday Children’s Programme
Kids of the Uniting Church [KUCA] is a Children’s programme held every week in three different age groups. Children are with the whole congregation for the first part of the service then go out for their session. On Communion Sundays children have an activity within the service and take Communion with their families.
We encourage our children to be part of the whole church family by taking part in worship, and contributing through reading the scriptures, acting as stewards and participating in liturgical drama. We also encourage children to participate in the mission of the church. They provide backpacks of educational materials for children in Vanuatu, and practical support for our UnitingCare Ballarat’s Breezeway programme which provides a hot meal for about 60 people every day of the year.
KucaKapers is a combined Uniting Church program that is held once per school term for Primary School aged children.
The sessions are held on a Saturday from 4.40pm to 7.00pm and include story time, crafts, games, a brief time of worship, food preparation and a meal. All activities are based around the biblical theme for the day.
Each term a different Uniting Church venue is used to encourage children from the local community to come and join in. The leaders are people from the children’s ministry teams across the Ballarat Uniting Churches.
Meets Tuesday mornings 9.30am – 11.00am in the Old Manse. Please bring a piece of fruit and a gold coin.

What on earth is this?
Well, the purpose of the ‘Star and Angel Breakfast’ is to have a very special Christmas celebration for the younger children – toddlers to Grade 1 (approximately). The children come dressed as stars or angels. Don’t worry if this is a problem as we will have a few spare wings and halos (the necessary bits) on hand.
During the ‘Star and Angel Breakfast’ they will do some craft activities, sing some songs and hear the story of Christmas, especially how the angels came with some very special news for Mary and the shepherds.
