Sunday School & Services

Sunday School at St George’s

Every Sunday morning 10am

Children are very welcome at St George’s. We have a range of programmes run by our families pastor, Margaret Houston.

We care about the spirituality of children and helping them to develop their faith.

For children who chose not to attend Sunday School, we offer a “Pray and Play” area for our younger members of the congregation (under 5s) in the main body of the church.

Ages 0-5
Prophets Group

Each session includes singing, a story, time for free play with our spiritually imaginative toys, an optional art activity, and prayer. Sometimes we have games or other physical activities.

We are lucky to have the team we do at St. George’s

Ages 5-11
Apostles Group

Our goal is to nourish children's spirituality through imagination and storytelling.

Each lesson begins with prayers and a story. Our stories are told in a hands-on way including the use of Beulah Land Bible Stories, puppets, collections of objects, or books. We encourage open-ended wondering about the stories. We resist the temptation to spell out the moral lessons to be learned from them. Children also have time for free play, art, games, or reading.

Ages 11-18
Saints Group

Fortnightly Youth Group led by Clare Heard, our Licensed Lay Minister. We are currently using the Rob Bell DVDs as a way to stimulate our lively discussions.

I told my friends, ‘It’s not boring!’
— Youth Group Member, Age 13
