The Admission of Children to Holy Communion Prior to Confirmation

January & February 2017

 

As a church family we are beginning 2017 with an exciting adventure. Together we will be looking at what we do when we come to church and what Holy Communion is about - the whole church family learning together.

We'll be using an informal but informative course, which will last for 9 weeks, and will begin on Sunday 8thJanuary 2017 during the 10.30am service in church.

For these 9 weeks, services will be child and family friendly (10.30-11.45am) and at the end of the teaching series we shall be admitting children who are baptised and in Year 3, and above, to Communion on: Sunday 5th March 2017 at 10.30am 

Children younger than Year 3, are of course still very welcome to join us in these services and there will be activities for them to do. To be admitted to Communion, children need to have attended the majority of these services so they get a good understanding about what receiving Communion means. We’ll provide them with a scrapbook for the activities that accompany this course.

The outline of the course is this:

  • 8th January: Belonging to God’s family
  • 15th January: Saying sorry & forgiveness
  • 22nd January: What we are doing when we sing songs in church?
  • 29th January: Prayer
  • 5th February: Sharing the peace
  • 12th February: What is communion?
  • 19th February: How and why we serve God?
  • 26th February: Telling others about our faith
  • 5th March: Young people will be Admitted to Communion during the service

The church leadership are excited about this new adventure, as we believe it will be a time of growth for both children and adults, and we shall be doing that together as a church family.

We’d love you to join us on this journey…
