St John's Sunday School
St John's Sunday School meets on a Sunday morning during the 11am Sung Mass. The children leave after the prayer of the Collect and meet in the corridor at the West end of the church. If you are joining us for the first time, look out for a group of children disappearing through a door on the right at the back of the church! We assemble here for a short prayer, before going on to the Sunday School room.
At the start of the session we usually listen to some Taize chant for a few minutes so that we can all get ready to listen to God. We then listen to a story taken from the Bible, the same story which is being read in church.
There are then a choice of activities, crafts and colouring (or more challenging) worksheets for the children to complete, linked to the teaching of the session.
We are summoned back into church at the moment of the Peace, so that we can all be together as a congregation for the Eucharistic (giving thanks) part of the service.
We look forward to welcoming new children to our Sunday School. In spite of restrictions imposed by the pandemic we are continuing to meet while observing social distancing. Children from the same household sit at their own table with their own pens and pencils.
Please make yourselves known to us if you are new or visiting.
