Sunday School meets each Sunday during the 9.45 Parish Eucharist. There are 2 groups: the younger group – Year 4 and below, and the older group – Year 5 and above – also know as “SAINTS”. SAINTS join the congregation for The Peace, while the younger children remain in Sunday School until it’s time for Communion. Both groups talk about the bible readings set for each week and do a range of activities around them – we sing, talk, draw, write and do plenty of craft. Sometimes Sunday School follows special themes, such as “The Ten Commandments”.
We have 9 Family Eucharists each year, where the children are in church for the whole service. On these occasions our Junior Choir leads the singing and Young Readers read the lessons. Every year we have a Sunday School Play that takes place during the main service, giving our young actors the chance to teach the whole congregation about God.
There are many Sunday School events during the year. These range from church-based activities such as a Children’s Way of Cross and Christingle to social events such as a summer campfire, ice skating and a Christmas Party. In addition to this, SAINTS have their own special programme of activities.
Take a look at our Youth Blog to see some of the things we get up to.
