Gecko in July

Emmanuel Church's much-loved Holiday Kids' Club is back! 

What is Gecko in July?
Gecko in July is our School Holiday Club for children in Kindergarten to School Year 5. It is a safe and fun program with games, singing, craft, fantastic stories from the Bible, food and lots more! Many kids come to Gecko only knowing a few and go home with lots of new friends! Gecko in July is a great opportunity to invite friends along!



Thursday 8th, 8.30am-5pm

Friday 9th July, 8.30am-5pm


Monday 12th July 8.30am-5pm (Monday is a pupil-free day at many schools)


In addition, all children and their families are warmly invited to the special Gecko Family Celebration Service on Sunday 11th July at 10.30am.


The service will be held at Emmanuel Anglican Church and will feature many of the things that the kids (and adults!) love about Gecko in July.

Some families would love for their child to come to GECKO in July but are not in a position to meet the entire cost.


Subsidies and payment plans are available for families that need additional financial support for their child to attend the program. Please email to explore alternative financial arrangements.

If you would like to make a donation to support others in attending GECKO in July you can do so as part of the registration process. Whether it is $20, $10 or $50 - any amount will make a real difference in making GECKO available to all children.


Due to COVID-19 limitations, there are fewer places available than in previous years. Registrations close on 1st July unless fully booked before this date. Please register early to avoid disappointment.


Cost is all-inclusive (morning tea, afternoon tea, craft, activities, etc) except for lunch, which your child will need to bring each day.


The club is being led by Suz Mann (our Children’s Ministry Coordinator) and a team of appropriately trained volunteer leaders and helpers. All leaders are safe ministry trained and have a Working With Children Check. For more information please click here.

For more information please phone Suz Mann at the Church Office (8850 1311) or email


The whole Gecko team is very much looking forward to welcoming your children and their friends and we’re working hard to ensure that they have a great time and learn lots about Jesus.
