Sunday School

 

The first Sunday of the month is an all age service, when the children stay in the service all the time.

On other Sundays, the children go into the back room while the preacher gives the message.

Here we look at different books of the bible in a creative and imaginative way, looking at stories from each book and understanding why, when and by whom the book was written.

The vision for this series came after a recognition that the children were being given bible stories to listen to, often without knowing from what part of the bible they came from. Some lessons covered ground that the children had covered before, but never covered many of the books of the bible which had beneficial lessons to learn.

It also has the vision of building up the children’s knowledge in a way that they owned what they had covered through the completion of their own ‘Bible Box’. The bible box was filled up each week with a folded card containing details of the book they have studied that week.

It also has the vision of engaging the children in the study with some practical involvement such as a craft.

The repeated use of the ‘Books of the Bible Song’ is used to re-inforce the studies and help them memorise the books of the bible off by heart.

We marked off on a chart the progress we made:
