Here’s what we offer for children and youth on Sunday mornings, post-Covid. Church starts at 9:30am with everyone in the worship space (entry through the glass doors on Merri St).
There’s a ‘kids corner’ with some quieter activities, and of course the chance to sing and pray. Most youth / teens sit with their parent/s until after the Children’s Time segment.
At around 9:45am we offer a pretty fun, and hopefully engaging Children’s Time, usually with some laughs, props, teaching, a song, and some sense of the sacred. Mostly, those aged 0 to 12 come down for this bit.
Then we head out in to the Big Hall for two sessions from about 9:50 to 10:40am:
- One for the Primary school aged children – Kinder to Grade 6. In Term 1, 2021, we are building Jerusalem in Jesus day through LEGO, then filming the LEGO mini-figs and retelling the key stories leading up to Easter.
- And one for the Secondary school-aged youth – Year 7 to 9 or 10. This is more discussion-based, sometimes using video clips, drawing on the themes being explored in church that week, stories of Jesus’ life, and any big life issues: COVID, racism, global warming, hope, kindness, love.
At BUC, we love it that children and youth are actively involved in the life of our community. We also love exploring the big questions… pondering, wondering, imagining.
