Sunday School restarted in Greyfriars on Sunday 2nd April 2017. Currently, it is held monthly on the first Sunday of each month. 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.
The general outline of Sunday School involves Bible-themed activities including creating collages, making cards, drawing pictures, and creating faith-based crafts, as well as plenty of singing and drama, which are all designed to appeal to ages 4-11. Help and plenty of encouragement is offered to ensure the children make the most of their time with us. It 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!
After the excellent work in helping set up our Sunday School, Drostie Tame, our first Sunday School teacher has resigned due to other pressing commitments. We appreciate her enthusiastic and dedicated work in inspiring young lives in the Christian faith. Sunday School is now led by Steph Moore and Rosemarie Main.
