Each week, Children’s Liturgy presents scripture stories to our children aged 4 to 9 in a relevant way. The children are taken out from the 9.30am mass in 3 age groups : 4-5. 6-7. 8-9. Currently we are limited to taking only one age group out each week as we only have use of the Sacristy but next month our new Parish Centre will be ready! We could take all the children every week! (as we used to) but to do this we need MORE VOLUNTEERS.
The commitment is not huge – a session of 20 minutes, twice per term. You would present an aspect of that day’s Gospel any way you like – with or without use of crafts, colouring, puzzles, music, dressing up – it’s up to you!. There are sheets for each week to give an outline and some ideas. You can volunteer with a friend, or with one of the existing team to help you. If you are a parent it can be a good way to help your child enjoy coming to church. Older teenagers may enjoy the chance to work with children or do some ‘community service’. If your children have grown up, you have helped in the past or you are a teacher we would be grateful for your experience.
You are welcome to come out with the children on one of the next few Sundays to see what we do. Please call me if you are interested or have any questions.
