St Botolphs clubs and groups
All about Sunday ClubAt St Botolph’s Church we want to
make all children feel as welcome as possible. We believe that if children are to grow in faith, they must feel part of the
congregation and learn how to be part of our worship. In this way they can learn about the Christian faith and
grow up as Christians and members of the church..Our pattern of Sunday services is designed
to meet the needs of both children and adults. On Sundays when meetings are held, the
children meet in church before 10am. They leave during the first hymn, and walk through the church into the hall. The children
then take part in their own act of worship as well as doing activities about the theme for the day. They then rejoin the main service at the distribution of
bread and wine.We encourage
all children in church to join the Sunday Club, but it is not compulsory and children must make their own decision. In the Sunday Club the children will learn about Jesus, the Bible and the Christian
faith in a fun way, using art and craft, drama and music.They learn in a safe and happy
environment and always make something to take home. At the end of the service they share what they have done with the congregation, so they are valued and encouraged
in what they do.
PLEASE NOTE—Parents will need to fill in a form giving child’s name, address and contact phone
number as well as age and date of birth. A note of any medical conditions will also need to be made. When completed,
these forms are kept in our church office. Please speak to Fr Lawrence for further information.
