Sunday School

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  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.

Messy Church  the first Saturday in each month 3-5pm in church includes tea

About fourteen years ago a young lady called Lucy Moore decided she wanted to try something different from set services and approached her vicar to try something new for families, for any family who perhaps didn’t come to church. It would be a light touch Christian focus that was informal with activities for all, where children and families could try out crafts, sing and have a meal together. ‘Messy’ referred more to the informal approach although frequently there was paint and glue involved!
The idea caught on big time. There are posters, books and other merchandise available and when we met up with Lucy earlier in the year she had just returned from a visit to Australia! Messy Church has gone global!
The Messy Church I started at my previous church is still going strong seven years on. So we have just started with young families in and around Wateringbury with a focus on families with children up to eight years and meeting in the church on the first Saturday of the month from 3pm – 5pm. We sing action songs, have a Bible story, perhaps games and then creative activities. We come back together to sing and we finish with tea.!
