Childrens’ Church

SUNDAY SCHOOL UPDATE 2024: is from Sunday 10 March until 16 June for children aged 4 – 14 years and is led by Emilie. If you need to get in touch with her, please write to:

The Kingdom of God belongs to such as these
Luke 18:16
Come and join us as we P.R.A.Y together!

We have a fantastic group of 15 children from 4 to 15 yrs old, attending Sunday School twice a month. We meet in the church for the service at 10:30 am and then move to the room upstairs after the first hymn.
Each session is different but we always follow a simple P.R.A.Y format:

P.raising God with a worship song
R.eflecting on God’s Story with a Big Idea
A.sking God to help us and others
Saying to God changing us from within

Since we have such a large age range, we split the children up into small groups to reflect on God’s Story using age-appropriate content.

So far, we’ve made a science experiment to illustrate how the Holy Spirit helps us, created a craft project to show how Jesus rescued us, watched videos for the older children and listened to bible stories for the younger children. We’ve also eaten chocolate Easter eggs that the Jolly Club gave us!

As a church, we pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for our Sunday School. We pray for families, children and young people to come to faith. We pray that our church will always be a place where families feel welcome.

Acknowledging the fact that God is present among us and within us, we seek to give each and every member of our community the opportunity to gain a greater awareness of God’s presence, and this is especially true for our younger members.

A dedicated team of Sunday School teachers offer Christian education to the children who come to All Saints’. Those who come are highly valued: we strive to meet their spiritual needs and introduce them to the fundamentals of the Christian faith.

The children are organised into various classes depending on their ages and throughout the year are involved in special activities. They also have a high profile during the Sunday Eucharist on special occasions like Mothering Sunday and Harvest Thanksgiving.
