Our Children’s & Family Minister, Matthew Couch, oversees our popular Sunday School during school term, which runs alongside our 9.30am service.
Two Safe Ministry Trained adults provide teaching, fun, games, craft, and singing.
Children begin in our Sunday School room at 9.30am where we light the Sunday School candle, pray, sing together and listen to a story from the bible. A creative craft response and short reflection follows before ending in prayer. We return to the church behind the Sunday School candle before returning to our families to receive a Blessing or Holy Communion together. A healthy morning tea and play time are provided afterward.
For children too young for Sunday school, a safe place is provided at the rear of the Church with room for prams, and a rug to play or lie on. Please feel free to bring your child’s favourite toys and books.
Activity sheets and coloured pencils are provided for preschoolers, and for school-aged children who prefer to stay with their families rather than attend Sunday School.
During school holidays, Sunday School children join their parents, and other adults in church, and are very welcome to take part in different parts of the service, assisting at the altar, helping with the Collection, doing a reading, being an acolyte (carrying a candle) etc.
A variety of outings and events are also offered for families and children throughout the year. Please check our events calendar for details on what’s coming up.
