Children & Youth
We welcome young people and young families. Children’s church begins during the 10:30 service. Children go to their own area, where they enjoy crafts and learn about the theme of the Gospel for that day. They are invited back into the main worship space in time to take Communion with the other parishioners.
Some events are of special interest to children as well as appealing to people of any age. We all enjoy social events such as the annual pancake supper and strawberry social. The annual Blessing of the Animals is always a treat.
Early in December we have a pre-Christmas potluck lunch. We usually have a visit from a jolly man in a red suit, so we ask that anyone bringing a child let us know the child’s name in advance. We also have an annual pageant, in which children enact the Christmas story.
It is a great pleasure to see young people move from Children’s Church to participation as acolytes.
ST. GEORGE’S YOUTH FESTIVAL CHOIR
We are in the process of forming a Young People’s Choir. The purpose is to encourage young people to strive for musical excellence, while instilling a deep love for music, true respect for themselves and their peers, and to learn the discipline necessary to become leaders and active participants in society.
For information please speak to our music director, Surinder Mundra.
