Children’s Church

 

Children’s Church (or Sunday school) begins at 10.30am in the parsonage and the children are brought into church after the Prayers of Intercession so that they can join their parents to come for a blessing during Holy Communion. There are two groups of children every week – one group for 4 to 7 year olds and one for 8 to 11 year olds. For the children under 4 there is always a creche. 

Usually there are 3 to 5 children per group but it has been known to have up to 20. A team of 5 adults organise the Sunday School taking it in turns in pairs to teach. All the teachers are bilingual so every child (whether English or Dutch speaking) will feel at home and the language used at any one time will reflect the needs of the children present. Sunday School usually begins with all the children singing together and then the groups split up for a story and activity.  Most children love the handicrafts and drawing.

On the first Sunday of each month there is all-age worship at 10.30 so the children go into church with their parents, though there is always a creche.

Holy Trinity Church has a strict safeguarding policy.  All adults working with the children are vetted and are in possession of a Verklaring omtrent gedrag (a declaration that they do not have a criminal record) from all countries they have been a resident in.
