Sunday school

Sunday School for children aged 3-12 years runs throughout the year, except for half-term, Easter, Summer and Christmas school holidays.

At every session there are 2 leaders from the team of 7, all of whom are Disclosure and Barring Service checked. We meet from 9:15 – 10:00am in the Brooklands Centre, Ousebank Street. The children are escorted back to church to join the congregation for the Holy Communion, when the children are encouraged to sit together with the leaders to enable them to feel more part of the service. Following Holy Communion the children collectively tell the congregation what they have learned in Sunday School.

Typical activities include Bible stories, projects and craft activities.  There are sometimes additional activities, such as the annual pantomime visit.

The children may bring some money for the offertory each week and this money is used to support two charities:-

·      Hand in Hand in Ethiopia, a charity working to change the lives of children in Addis Ababa through relieving poverty, providing education and promoting good health.  We sponsor a young boy, Yonathan Darge, supporting his education through the charity’s centre. 

·      Toy Box, a charity working with street children in Latin America.  We purchase Toy Box crosses from the charity as a gift to present to newly baptised children. 

Children in Year 3 have the opportunity to be prepared for First Communion if both child and parents are agreeable.
