RETURN TO SCHOOL WISHES
As government lockdown measures continue to ease, we all look forward to returning to a more normal way of living, even though we may feel a bit anxious. The Sunday School Team is especially mindful that all our children will be starting back to full-time School this month - all being well. Our thoughts are with them (as too are our thoughts with the Congregation). We trust that all will go well.
 
 
 
 

Pre-Lockdown Sunday School

 

Children aged 3 - 8yrs meet in the Upper Hall prior to the start of the church service, where the leaders will be waiting to welcome them. Just before 11am this group move into the church with their leaders and join the rest of the congregation for the start of the service. After the Children's Address and a child-friendly hymn they head back to the Upper Hall for their special activities. Parents can meet up with their children at the end of the service at the Upper Hall.

Any young person aged 9 years and over should meet in our Sunday School pew prior to the start of the service. Part-way through the service this age group, along with their leaders, will leave the church (as above) but they will continue their special activities along in the Glebe Street Hall. If you've never been before, please come along. We have a great time and you'll make new friends.

 

For information:  

Here’s a reminder about our meeting places for children every Sunday morning:

The Creche has a lovely comfortable and roomy space to play and be cared for in the Lounge Area in the hall beside the Church.  The needs of babies and toddlers up to the age of three years are met by our experienced team of volunteers.

The Beginner/Primary group gather initially in the Upper Hall beside the Church.  Just prior to the Morning Service beginning, they come into Church as a group.  Following the children’s address they return to the Upper Hall where parents can meet them at the end of the Service. This group enjoys story time and craft activities.

The Juniors arrive at Church and meet in our pews inside.  After the children’s address they walk along to the large hall at Glebe Street where we explore the Bible using a variety of activities to suit the skills of children at the upper end of  Primary School and Secondary School age young folk.
