Virtual Sunday School

Welcome to our Virtual Sunday School!

Sadly, we cannot meet face-to-face for our Sunday School time just now. But here you will find lessons and resources for families to use to create their own home-based time for learning and worship together. You will find downloadable materials and links to audio and video resources that will provide your family with the tools that you need for your own Sunday (or any day) Christian learning time.



Note to parents and caregivers: 

You will find with each learning module a number of resources, including videos and music to share. There will also be a lesson plan that you can download. Each lesson plan provides

1. the theme of the lesson, 

2. background materials to help you understand the story that you will be sharing with your family,

3. an outline for a brief family worship time,

4. some discussion questions, and 

5. activity pages.

As the angels said to the shepherds: 'Do not be afraid!' Enjoy your time learning and worshipping together as a family.

Lent


We have now begun a new season in our Church Year: Lent. During Lent we take part in a journey together towards the pain and sadness of Good Friday and the joy of Easter. 

We use the colour purple during Lent as a sign that this is a season of reflection and repentence. Jesus came to find and save us when we are lost. Our Lenten journey will show us that Jesus is always there to search for us when we lose our way and to love us when we are feeling alone. We all need Jesus to find and save us.

We can follow our journey through Lent on the 'Our Lenten Journey' map. Download and print the Our Lenten Journey file, then colour in a square each day as we travel from Ash Wednesday to Easter.


First Sunday in Lent

We begin our Lenten journey by remembering Jesus' final journey to Jerusalem with his friends. 

The downloadable file Lent 1 contains the learning materials, creative activities, and resources for the lesson. Read through the material first - there will be some preparation needed before you start - and then follow through the material from the opening act of worship to the final engagement.


The Second Sunday in Lent

As we continue down the road to Jerusalem with Jesus and his friends, there are stops along the way as the people gather to see Jesus and to hear his teaching. This week, Jesus tells a story: the parable of the Lost Sheep.
