We are hoping to relaunch of our Sunday School – and we’re really looking forward to working with our young people on so many activities! In addition to our craft based sessions, we’ll also be encouraging the children to actively take part in some special Sunday Services, such as our annual gift service.
Sadly, at present we have no children, but don’t despair, we can always provide a Sunday School if there are children in attendance.
Over the years, our Sunday School has positively thrived, and we’ve seen the children take part in Chalice Awards, our annual arts and crafts exhibition and our family services.
They’ve raised money for charities of their choosing, ranging from black rhino conservation, tiger conservation, ‘Kidneys for Life’ and more.
The Sunday School meets every Sunday at 11 am. The children join us for worship for the first ten minutes, before retiring to our Scott Memorial room where they enjoy discussions and individual and collective creativity.
The children attending Sunday School are rewarded each year by being given a small token of our appreciation of their efforts, attendance and contributions to the chapel. There’s even a place at the committee table for a young peoples’ representative.
Without question, our biggest event is the annual arts and crafts exhibition, which is now into its ninth decade.
Neighbouring Unitarian Churches and Chapels compete against each other individually, and as collective Sunday schools in a wide variety of subjects – from play reading, poetry, cooking, photography, and so on. The best thing is, this isn’t just for the children – adults are actively encouraged to take part in the competition, too!
Our adults that supervise the Sunday School are all DBS checked, but should your child not wish to participate in Sunday School, then they are more than welcome to join us in the main Chapel for the entire service – we love to hear the sound of children’s laughter!
