Sunday School

Sunday School is on its summer break until 4 September. Children are very welcome to join in the church service with their parents or carers over this period.

During our 11am Sunday service, we run a Sunday School for children from 3 to 10 years old at the London Docklands Museum. Children start in the service on the Barge and then parents take them across to the Museum as directed by the service leader. Do come and join us as we learn about Jesus from the Bible. We take seriously teaching the Bible to all ages at an appropriate level and with lots of fun and interaction!

The children are split into 3 classes based on their age and school year:

Ages 3, 4 and Reception – Tug boats

Reception and Years 1-2 – Fishing boats

Years 3-6 – Life boats

The children are taught the Bible passage for the week, and often learn a memory verse from the Bible. The teaching methods look different for the different age-groups: conversation and crafts for the younger children; Bible study, discussion and games for the older children. In all groups we encourage the children to learn to pray to our Heavenly Father. We hope the children have a lot of fun while learning as well!

Safeguarding
Here at the Barge, we take Safeguarding of children seriously. We have two Safeguarding Officers, Yulian Margaretha and Fiona Robb. They can be contacted at safeguarding@stpetersbarge.org or just catch one of them after the service.

To ensure we offer the best possible care for the children, we have adopted the Safeguarding in the Diocese of London Policy Document.
