After a very long break, we are delighted that a Sunday School restarted in Greyfriars on Sunday 2nd April 2017. Currently, it is held monthly on the first Sunday of each month (see dates for the rest of the year below) and is led by Drostie Tame, our Sunday School teacher. We welcome regular and visiting children between the ages of 4 and 11 to take part. The children come into the church at the start of the service at 11am, take part in their class in neighbouring Greyfriars’ House and rejoin the congregation at the start of the Eucharist. Any parents wishing to accompany their children are very welcome to do so.
Drostie says “I believe my role as facilitator is to learn from, listen to and honour the children so that our Sunday School becomes a vibrant, lively space that is led as far as possible by the children attending, their own imaginations, input and relationship with God.
Bible-themed activities which the children can look forward to include creating collages, making cards, drawing pictures, and creating faith-based crafts, as well as plenty of singing and drama, all designed to appeal to ages 4-11. Help and plenty of encouragement will be offered to ensure the children make the most of their time with us. This is a sacred space for them in the same way as is our adult worship. The children are free to take part in any activity, or not, as they wish, and if they would rather just observe that is fine too!"
Dates for 2017: 4th June / 2nd July / 6th August / 3rd September / 1st October / 5th November / 3rd December
