“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Children of all ages are most welcome. Both churches provide varied sessions to suit all ages from tiny babies to inquisitive older children.
Crèche: All pre-school aged children will participate in age appropriate activities including playing with toys, singing, drawing, and making things.
Junior Sunday School: From Primary 1 to Primary 3: An activity-based session which focuses discussion and fun activities around popular Bible stories and links these with the church in modern day life.
Senior Sunday School: From Primary 4 to older age groups: More activity led sessions building an understanding and allowing further insight into the broader role of the church in today’s society.
Bible Class: Older children: those who wish to delve into discussion and debate amongst their friends, and broaden their understanding and insight into “what is the Bible actually saying?” and “what does this mean to us?”
ALL sections, except for the crèche, routinely participate in part of the Sunday church service.
The younger sections of the Sunday School participate at the beginning of the service. During this section of the church service they sing hymns or songs with the congregation and the minister speaks directly with them for a “children’s address”. This is often done with participation from the children and is certainly interactive, keeping the minister on his or her toes whether it is a story, game, quiz, or challenge!!
The Bible Class plays a leading role in many of the youth-led special services at Easter, Christmas, and other times within the year. They also regularly join the congregation for the sermon and later part of the morning service.
