Friday Club

Friday Club 


friday club


There are three groups:

Sprouts for those in School Years 1 and 2;

Disciples for those in School Years 3 and 4; and

Saints for those in School Years 5, 6 and 7.

During Friday morning services a crèche is provided for parents and infants in the cathedral office from where the service can be heard.

We begin together with our families in the Cathedral at the start of the service and usually leave for our three groups at the end of the first hymn. We return before the Communion.

We aim to provide worship, teaching and activities which are appropriate to the ages of the children in each group, but following the same theme through the month. This theme will flow into the family service following so that children can contribute in some way to that service whether in song, prayers mime or drama.

In recent years the children of Friday Club have been involved in an ambitious play both before Christmas and on Palm Friday, ten days before Easter.
