At some point during the growing-up of a child, he or she will inevitably ask questions about religion and the existence of God: questions like ‘is God real?’, ‘what does God look like?’ and ‘are the stories in the Bible true?’
At Canterbury Salvation Army, whilst we don’t claim to have the answers to all of these questions we do provide a place where children can explore these issues and come to form their own opinions on complex and difficult areas, learn about Christian stories and characters, and have fun through craft, games and cooking.
Our Sunday school – for those aged 12 and below – meet every Sunday, beginning at around 10.30am; whilst the adults continue the morning service in the main hall in our building in Whitehorse Lane, the children gather in the lower hall beneath for an hour or so. All of our volunteers are CRB-checked, and we put the interests of the children at the heart of all we do, so parents can be sure of the happiness and well-being of those involved.
We would be pleased to see you and your children any Sunday – simply turn up for the morning service and the young people will move off to their own activities part-way through. Although we appreciate a donation to help fund our activities, this is not essential. If you would like any more details, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – or just visit us one Sunday morning!
