Snippets From The Records
|There is an active and well attended class for our younger members called Sunday Stars which meets at the St.Matthias & St.George church hall starting at 10:30 each Sunday. This is with the exception of the first Sunday in each month when the group is welcomed into Church for an informal family service. |
The Sunday Stars have a strong team of instructors so different age groups can be accomodated with several 'classes' being provided.
The Sunday Starts join the congregation in church towards the end of the service so that those who are confirmed and want to receive the sacrament may do so, and then an opportunity is given to each group from the Sunday Stars to inform the congregation what they have been doing during their 'classes'
Good Friday Workshop
Every year on Good Friday church members and friends work to run a morning of activities for local children in the church and hall. Many activities take place including various arts, crafts, cooking and drama. At midday an act of worship including drama is held in the church and this is followed by a shared lunch for children and helpers. During the morning adults try to help the children to reflect upon and learn more about the death and resurrection of Jesus and what this means to us today; they are often surprised how much they learn from the young people!
