ONLINE SUNDAY SCHOOL
Supporting Our Young People During The Coronavirus Lockdown
There are many challenges that the Coronavirus lockdown brings, and without our church services we are unable to run our Sunday School in person.
We are doing our best to bring our services online and with that, we are also offering Sunday School material for parents to download and run with their children.
This is the first time we are doing this and so we ask you to be patient and work with us to support you in supporting your children's spiritual journey during this time.

Karin Holsinger Sherman offers Candle Walk, a beautiful illustrated
picture book that prepares children for sleep by taking them on a
candlelit wander through the woods and inviting them to experience the
Compline, a centuries-old practice of contemplative evening prayer.
Appropriate for toddlers through elementary aged children, Candle Walk
is a wonderful way to prepare children for sleep, assured of the
nearness of God. The Order of Compline from The Book of Common
Prayer is also included at the back of the book.
CORONAVIRUS, ANXIETY, CHILDREN AND
A great article
with concrete ideas from Building Faith. With an increase in the number
of churches suspending the common cup and even cancelling services
in response to COVID-19, there is need to discuss the long-term impact
of how we manage and narrate pastoral responses to this pandemic,
particularly where children are involved, so as to not allow adult
anxieties to take over the story.
