Sunday Schooldrums in church

Our Sunday School uses the Godly Play program. The program is offered during our 10:30am service.

Godly Play is a creative and imaginative approach to Christian Nurture and is based on long established, tried and tested approaches. Godly Play is a way pf preparing children to join in the worship and life of their congregations as they develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites.
