Children In Church
At St Cuthbert’s and St Thomas’ we want parents of young children to feel welcome, Ask for your weekly copy of the Workbook for Kid’s as you enter.
In St Cuthbert’s at Yarrawonga we have a Children’s Corner set aside in the Church for people with toddlers, so that the children can explore. We welcome families to be involved in all our services.
3 years plus
At the 10am service “Fun and Faith” (Sunday School) is provided for children over the age of three in the room on Lynch Street. Children are encouraged to return to sit with their parents within the congregation, in time to receive a blessing or Communion at the Communion rail.
An Activity tub with pencils and colour in pages is situated in the Children’s Corner under the pew, please help yourselves and enjoy the Workbook for Kid’s Stories provided.
All Age Worship / Messy Church
On the fourth Sunday of alternate months (except January and School Holidays) we have a service geared for ” all Ages ”
More than Music, a Craft and Worship Experience offered for families from 5 – 7pm starts in the Yarrawonga Hall, followed by a meal to share.
A great way for children, teenagers and adults to celebrate the love of Jesus in an informal, educational and relaxed way.
Fun And Faith Program
St Cuthbert’s run a children’s bible study called ‘Fun and Faith’ during the 10am Service except on school holiday weekends. The children have their own special time of learning for approximately 45 minutes then join their parents in Church for the remainder of the service.
When and Where?
We welcome children to meet the teachers in the separate room on site (Lynch St) 10am most Sundays.
The Children are invited to participate in the AWE services each month along with the annual Nativity Story held on Sunday prior to Christmas, where a book presentation occurs.
