find out what the children have been doing during each
Sunday Club we believe every child is a special
creation of God. Each week the children learn about
the teachings of Jesus and read the Bible in a fun,
relaxed environment. We use stories, acting, arts
and craft, music and games to demonstrate the Bible's
messages and meanings.
also share with the children moral values like loving
your neighbour, to be kind and fair, and to work for a
better world; to help them to elicit the best from themselves
and develop caring relationships and social responsibility.
Ultimately we want our children to become responsible
adults firmly grounded in the Christian faith and at Sunday
Club we try to help their parents achieve this goal.

was donated to the church in 2011.
the first Sunday of each month we have an All Age Service
at 11a.m. which the children attend. This helps them to be more
involved with the adults of church family and become more confident
and used to the discipline and order of church services. Often
they will take an active part in the service which may for example
involve groups or individuals doing the Bible reading, helping
with the prayers, taking the collection or acting out a story
in words or singing a song.
