Children’s Church

Please note due to Coronavirus restrictions Sunday School has been suspended.

‘Sunday School’ takes place in the St Nicholas room on Sundays during the 10am service for children of school age and accompanied pre-school children. Each week we share a story from the bible, complete a craft or picture, say a prayer, and perhaps sing or play a game.

We sometimes provide a take home sheet which includes a brief synopsis of the story (and a bible reference if appropriate), why we made/drew or coloured something (the link can be quite subtle at times!) and a payer or memory verse for the week ahead.

If you would your child to attend the Children’s Church, please see a welcomer on the door.
