What did you Learn?

The normal pattern for our services is for the children to be present at the start of worship and then leave for “Supertroopers,” our Sunday school. When there is Communion, they rejoin their parents and come with them to the communion rail, where they receive a blessing.

Just before the end of the service, they are usually given the opportunity to show the rest of the congregation what they have been learning. This last Sunday they had been learning how Jesus went up the mountain with his disciples, who saw Moses and Elijah with Jesus and heard God the Father say: “‘This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!’

Not only had the children obviously been listening well, as they could recount the story in detail, but they had made an intricate model of it. Our thanks are due to Derek Bowering and his team for the way that they inspire our children.
