At St. Andrew's Uniting Church, we seek to honour our baptismal vows to nurture children in their Christian faith by:
St Andrew's Uniting Church Glenbrook
a safe and loving environmental in which to learn;
children know God's love and grace through worship, creative learning and fellowship events;
children to ask faith questions;
a love of the Scriptures with our children;
our children in exploring ways to serve God.
We strive to provide a means for God's children to grow in their lives of Christian faith. Children are actively engaged in all aspects of our Christian community, including:
~ We encourage our children to be active participants and leaders in worship. Children participate in the worship life of the congregation by regularly serving as acolytes, liturgists, and musicians. Children also prepare and lead worship on the Children's Sabbath, which will be held in 2014 on October 19th.
~ Education begins in the home and extends through active participation in Sunday morning "Workshop" which is held during the latter portion of the worship service, commencing after the Scripture lessons are read.
~ Children are invited to discover who God is by the sharing of parables, sacred stories, and liturgical lessons. Godly Play is held on Sunday afternoons at 4:00pm during school terms. Children and adults are welcome to attend.
