St James’s Church in Bushey High Street opens doors to youngsters
Children and teenagers are invited to join a new Sunday School in Bushey.
St James’s Church in Bushey High Street is opening its doors to youngsters aged from three to 13 for the new venture held every Sunday at 9.30am.
Following lessons they can join with their parents in church who may bring them to the altar at the time of Communion to receive a blessing.
Students also have an opportunity to light a candle as a sign of their prayers.
Members of the Sunday School are introduced to familiar bible stories, as well as learning about the life of Jesus Christ. They also learn about the lives of the saints and what it means to belong to the Christian Church.
Part of the lesson is given to activities, they hear a Bible story each week and they learn how to pray.
From time to time the children’s work is displayed in church for everyone to see.
Other activities arranged throughout the year include a picnic with Bouncy Castle, trip to a pantomime, Christmas party and Easter egg-hunt.
Father Neil Kelley, Rector of Bushey, said: "This is an exciting new venture which all young people in the area are welcome to join.
"There are all kinds of exciting parties and activities planned in addition to the learning that will take place, so we are hoping that children in the area will realise that Sunday School is actually an exciting thing to come along to."
