For children below Sunday school age, a Crèche is available in the Library, just off the side chapel on a Sunday morning, and offers a range of toys and books as well as colouring sheets on the theme of the Sunday readings.
You can accompany your child(ren) or you can drop them off just before the service and pick them up in time for the Communion for a blessing, or at the end of the service. We do ask that children are collected no later than 11:50.
If you are interested in your children using the crèche please contact email@example.com
The crèche is supervised by one of two committed students, but we always welcome members of St. George's for help with standby for each Sunday. This does not involve your doing anything unless for some reason the student fails to turn up or there are too many toddlers for her to supervise, or the student needs to deal with one child in particular and requires someone to look after the others for a while.
Please contact one of the chaplains or Church Wardens if you are happy to help with this.
Sunday School means fun
Sunday School is for school age children (primaire, collège, lycée) to hear and understand that weeks bible readings in an age-appropriate way.
After the Opening Prayer we leave church behind the icon of the Archangel Michael for the Club Room. Here we learn the bible stories - from the Old and New Testaments - that help us understand and respond to Jesus.
We rejoin our families after Holy Communion (unless we're going to present something to the whole congregation after the Notices!).
Sunday School needs new leaders. We take Safeguarding seriously and any adult leader will undergo checks.
Godly Play was developed by Jerome Berryman, over 40 years of work with children in the USA. Using Montessori methods of ‘presenting scripture stories to children’ Godly Play is a method of ‘showing’ Bible stories. It encourages ‘playing’ with the language of God. It is designed to help listeners to ‘enter the language to be more fully in God’s presence’ [‘The Complete Guide to Godly Play’ Volume 1 page 9].
Godly Play is being used by leaders in business , government and the 3rd sector as a way to access the power of human imagination and the human spirit. It is a powerful tool for learning.
Godly Play uses a story - told with simple figures and using traditional story telling techniques - and then gives time and different opportunities for the listeners to work through the implications of the story for themselves.
Godly PlayDays are planned for 2023 - watch this space!
