Children's churchHelping children grow in their faith
All Saints’ church believes that helping children grow in their faith is important. We also believe that the whole church, young and old, should have the opportunity to worship together.
Children begin the worship service, in the church building with their families or guardians.
After the collect (a short prayer), all children are invited to join the children’s church.
Teaching and prayer
Children’s church consists of:
- a teaching,
- a time of prayer, and
- a fun activity related to the teaching.
The lessons the children receive correspond to the church’s liturgical calendar.
Each Sunday, children’s church is staffed by two adults. Visiting children are most welcome to join in, or stay in the service with their parents or guardians.
All supervising adults are subject to appropriate security checks by Disclosure Scotland.
Returning to the service
The children return to the service before the celebration of the Eucharist (communion) and participate in the rest of the service with their family.
