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!
Here at the Barge, we take the Safeguarding of children seriously. Our Safeguarding Officer is Fiona Robb. She can be contacted at [email protected] (020 7093 1212) or just catch her 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.
