Sunday Programme of Activities for Young Church

St Ninian’s values greatly the contribution that children, young people and their families make to the life of our community.

The Young Church at St Ninian’s usually meets during the 10.30am service of Sung Eucharist each week
 Additionally, Godly Play gathers in the church at 3.30pm on the Third Sunday of the month (Navigation bar on left). 

David’s Den
Monthly sessions for young people to explore the Sunday theme and Bible readings. Led by The Revd Dr David de Pomerai in the church hall.
We use Roots© resources every week in Sunday School. This material is designed to enrich our young people’s encounters with God and support their responses through worship and learning. You’ll find information below about what we’re doing  for this term:

      • Our provision for children and young people can only happen thanks to a team of volunteers who give up some of their time to help in this way.
      • St Ninian’s has adopted the following policy statement for Child Protection:

        “The Scottish Episcopal Church recognizes the special status of children and young people. Because of their vulnerability, children and young people will be awarded special protection. They are to be respected as a person in their own right, created and loved by God. We, therefore, commit ourselves to take all steps within our power to keep children and young people safe from physical, sexual and emotional harm.”

         St Ninian’s follows the guidelines of the Scottish Episcopal Church on safeguarding the welfare of young people and children and its procedures for good practice. Ministry to children and young people is a cherished and important part of the work of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
