All Saints’ Church School is striving to provide the children with genuine caring, bible stories that give children truths to build on, friends, creative learning activities, and an opportunity for parents and children to join our faith community. 

We are presently using the curriculum "Seasons of the Spirit". The lectionary based lessons enable children and parents to discuss the stories that they both have heard that morning.

 

The Church School follows the curriculum from September to the end of June. In the summer, there is a multi-age program for the children, many of whom are visitors. The lessons in the summer are the favourite Bible stories.

The Church School has co-coordinators, supported by a very capable and enthusiastic group of teachers. We also have a group of people who are “Friends of the Church School". These people make up “teams” that are responsible for one specific class - others help in administration and in creative and consultative capacities. We look to our Rector, Dawn Henderson, for spiritual and visionary direction. Sarah Spring, All Saints' music director, provides support in our music.

 

We have set up a Toddler program for ages 1to 3. The program has been equipped with toddlers in mind, & presents themes of important Bible Stories and events in the Church year.

 

The Church School resources include, a variety of craft materials, costumes, books, videos, tapes, toys, bible story kits, and musical instruments. Our books and videos have been catalogued, ready for sharing from our Church School library.

The Church School participates, with pageants, dramas, and special celebrations, on the church festival days such as All Saints’ Day, Christmas, Epiphany, Palm Sunday, Easter and Pentecost. Many of these have become annual traditions, and are built on each year.

The Church School children are active participants in the “Family” services with the older children reading, sharing the “Prayers of the People”, and the Youth Band providing the music.

 

The Church School has been involved in several outreach initiatives - Teddy Bears for the Ambulance services, children's books for Great Beginnings, sending Guatemalan children to camp, contributions to the Food Bank and the H.P.S. breakfast club.

The Church School communicates with the parents and children through notices in the Parish News, phone arounds and or mailings & e-mail for special events, and a Church School brochure. We have connections with other committees at All Saints’. The ACW and Fellowship and other “friends of the Church School” help us with various functions.

 

The Junior Acolyte Guild is wonderful transition for the church school children to become part of the ministry of worship. The JAGs are presenters, gospel bearers, torch bearers, and crucifers. Some of the older children, partnering with an adult are sidespersons.

 

The Church School is continually evolving and changing according to the needs of the children and the parish. Watch for updates on this website!
