Lessons for life!

At 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.

We 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.

Parents are more than welcome to come in and join the children in the Church Room or stay for the morning service. If you prefer, you can drop your children off and pick them up after the end of the service. Afterwards there are refreshments and chat when you can meet with other parents and children.

Made by the children

A set of wooden tables and chairs designed for smaller children was donated to the church in 2011.

On 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.

The church has strong links with St. Osyth Primary School, where there is a good grounding in the Christian faith for all.
