Welcome to St Mary’s Cathedral Kids’ Church!
At St Mary’s we’re convinced that the gospel is for all people, including the youngest of children. We strive to support parents in their great responsibility to bring up their children to know and love Christ as Saviour and Lord. We’d love you to join us!
The Kids’ Church teaching team is happy to welcome back the children for face-to-face lessons on Sunday mornings at 10.45 am, starting 31 July 2022!
Children aged 3-12 are warmly invited to join our classes which provide
- bible-based teaching
The different age groups will meet at their respective classrooms on the ground floor of the Cathedral. Parents can pick up their children aged 5-12 at a time announced during the church service, while children aged 3-4 can be picked up after the 11.00 am church service ends.
At present, the following groups are available:
Lessons are taught by a minimum of 3 teachers, beginning with a short playtime followed by singing and Bible teaching from God’s word in a simple and interactive way. Our goal is to introduce children to God and Jesus.
Lessons are led by at least 2 teachers. Lessons begin with singing, prayer and games, followed by an interactive teaching time from God’s word, which is then reinforced with various activities including singing, games, craft and prayers. Our goal is to introduce the children to the main story of the Bible, and help them begin trusting in Jesus.
Children spend time being taught God’s word and learning more about trusting and following Jesus. Lessons are interactive, and includes games, songs and activities. Our goal is to help children begin reading the Bible for themselves and trust Christ as Saviour and Lord.
For this age group, we encourage the children to engage directly in the study of God’s word, and to work out for themselves what it means to follow Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord. Children become confident in finding their way around the bible and are encouraged to read out in class if they are able. We spend time sharing and discussing application of God’s word often using puzzles and games to introduce or reinforce the topic.
If you or your child have any special needs, or you would like us to help you settle your child in Kids’ Church, please do contact us. We’re delighted to provide advice and support as much as we are able.
