Sunday School at St Saviour’s

What happens in Sunday School?

Our Aim

To teach the classic Bible stories, and to explore our Christian faith in an age appropriate way.

Theme of the week

We look at the same Bible reading that is being read in church that week, and our sessions will include various activities. Every week is different.
• A story
• Some craft or art activities
• Maybe a music session
• Games
• Prayers
• …. and much, much more!

A typical Sunday at St Saviour’s

  • When you come into church you can go straight up stairs to the Sunday school areas. The room on the left is for the Junior Sunday school, the area to the right is for the older children.

  • The children are greeted by the leaders of the day and take a seat while the parents are asked to sign their children onto the Sunday school register. Parents will then return to church for the start of Mass.

  • A welcome is given to all, followed by the telling of the story for the day.

  • The story is told in a variety of ways, using drama, audio clips or Godly Play. Once the story has been told, the children are encouraged to explore the story, using their imagination to get inside it and discover its meaning and their reaction to it.

  • There are specific art and craft activities following the theme, or worksheets laid out to help the children further explore the story of the day.

  • Sunday school lasts about 20 minutes at 8am and 45 minutes at 11am, after which time there is a short summary of the lesson and an opportunity for the children to share what they have made or learned.

  • We say the Lord’s Prayer together and return to Church at the point where Communion is being administered.

  • Following the Sunday Service there is squash and brioche @8am; and squash and biscuits @11am which are served at the back of Church that the children can enjoy with their families.
