Welcome to GFS and KidsPlus+ Perth

GFS KidsPlus+ have an innovative and exciting approach to Children’s Ministry in Perth. Since the 1880s, Girls Friendly Society Inc. (GFS) has been at the forefront of ministering to young women and girls. Now, more than 125 years later, the organisation still provides pertinent and exciting modules of ministry to children, youth and adult members as well as their families. We would be delighted to help you with your ministry endeavours.

We provide ministry to children, teens and their families through:

Traditional girls only GFS Branches

– KidsPlus+ Groups for both girls and boys

– TeenLinx – For children aged 12 up

If there is any help you need with children’s and youth ministry then please call us!

We have dedicated and trained fieldworkers who can show you ways to connect children and families with Christ. This is a great time for GFS – KidsPlus+ and you.

We welcome to GFS & KidsPlus

Peter Hotchkin is the newest Fieldworker for GFS KidsPlus+. Peter is a trained youth worker with 15 years’ full-time experience in children’s and youth ministry across the country – having worked in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth. He’s also volunteered many hours of youth work in the Church on top of that ministry.
Peter has been an Anglican youth minister, a mission fieldworker, a fundraiser and bequest officer. He has worked with children and young people through camping ministries, small groups, day-camps, and junior leadership development. When in Parish ministry, Peter had spiritual oversight of a congregation of 50 people and participated in all aspects of Parish life – including Alpha, Youth Alpha, Sunday services, preaching, training a team of leaders and working in local schools. Peter has trained adult leaders who even decades later still continue in ministry.
We hope Peter’s skill-set can help increase participation of older kids in KidsPlus+, to work on the TeenLinx program, to work with the team on leadership training (including Junior Leadership Training) and to develop participating boys within GFS KidsPlus+ programs. We really hope Peter can help you! If there is some way you could see these skills and ideas being helpful to your Parish or Church? Please call us and we can discuss the possibilities.

      Often we can’t think of how to pray for our children. Our prayers are sometimes pedestrian and ramble around vague hopes and thoughts. While this idea isn’t exhaustive, it gives us a starting point on how we can Connect our Children and Families with Christ. This idea was written by Bob Hostetler many years ago […]
