Children’s Classes

About the Classes

We currently have 2 classes: Infants (4-8years) and Juniors(9+)

These are classes on the Eastern Orthodox faith and life, with the aim of helping your children to understand their faith, and to grow in faith and love for God.

A child will learn the most about God and faith at home – the classes are only a supplement. Therefore, it is important that parents commit to encouraging and reinforcing what their child learns in the classes, when they are at home.

Classes are taught in English.

When and where?

Most Sundays about 10minutes after Divine Liturgy. Download the Curriculum 2018-2019 for dates and topics.

They are held in the back room in our church building.

How to Support the Classes

Donate: Currently we want to increase the number of Orthodox books and resources. The room can also be cold so better heating is needed. We would also like to make improvements to the room to make it easier to teach.

Be a teacher or teacher’s assistant – we need more people on the rota.
