Sunday School is held at 10:30 in the Church Hall for children in the ages groups of 4 to 8 year olds and 9 to 13 year olds. Both groups are usually well attended, with the younger group having their sessions in the lounge and the older group using the main hall.
The sessions for the younger children are held during school term times but exclude Church Parade Sundays which are usually the second Sunday of the month.
The group is organised by Jeanette, and three regular helpers, Julie, Joanne and Alison. They need all the help they can get as their group can often be as large as thirty children!
Among the many activities this group regularly enjoy together are:
Jeanette and her helpers also arrange a festive performance every year with the children taking part in a Nativity play which is held in the church. This is a very special event with all the children dressed in colourful costumes and some playing musical instruments.
The children attending the Junior classes include past, present and future candidates for confirmation.
These sessions usually comprise a variety of activites including:
In earlier years, the children have taken part in a Children's Service in which they 'performed' the usual the Sunday Service completely by themselves using the readings and hymns they had picked. Some of the more musically accomplished children have also played their instruments in church on Sundays, to celebrate the talents of our church's younger members.
