Sunday School or Sundays’ Cool as we like to call it, provides the opportunity for our young people to learn about our faith in a loving and fun environment.
The Sunday School is held during the normal 10am Sunday service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. We enjoy a caring family atmosphere in the Sunday School and would love to welcome any new faces. All ages are welcome we do however ask that under 4’s bring a parent or carer in with them as we have just 2 adults leading most sessions. During a session we normally enjoy praising God with singing and dancing to lively worship music, with the help of musical instruments. We pray together, usually in a prayer circle enabling each child the opportunity to pray if they wish. A Bible story is shared, often relating to the reading/sermon that the adults are hearing in the main service. Craft activities and games follow the theme of ‘ Today’s Story’ which encourages learning in a fun way.
Please come and join us as we praise and learn about God together.
Toddler Praise takes place every Monday throughout the year from 2pm-3pm. You will find us in the Guide and Scout Hall in The Glebe (Just off Bow Rd), just follow the noise! We welcome new born children up to school-age. We dance, sing, listen to stories, talk to Puppets, play with instruments and other games too. Mums have a chance for a chat followed by tea and biscuits. Over the years we have built up a strong but open fellowship and Mums and Dads everywhere are welcome to join us, all you need is a baby or a Toddler!
The Easter Project
The Easter Project has become a fixed item on our calendar of events at Easter. It is held in Church during the morning on the day before Easter Sunday. It began in 2006 with the aim of sharing the joyful news of Jesus’ death and resurrection with children of Primary school age. Children come mainly from Wateringbury but those outside the village are very welcome and indeed we have had more and more children coming from other areas. The morning is roughly organized into 3 sections:
Easter Story and singing
Easter crafts and refreshments
More of the Easter story, singing and giving out of prizes.
As parents return to collect their children, we share with them some of the things we have been up to. This year we had 86 children join us and with over 40 adult helpers the Church was ‘buzzing.’
