Children’s Religious Education Program
We have a wonderful children’s religious education program, which is a time for children to explore life values in a fun and interactive way while their parents or grandparents participate in the worship service. The children’s time includes songs, meditation and stories, as well as games, crafts and projects. Our faith is based on seven principles, which are reflected in our children’s curriculum. The children have a version of the principles that uses the colours of the rainbow to capture the essence of what we believe as Unitarians:
Red – Respect all people
Orange – Offer fair and kind treatment to all
Yellow – Yearn to learn about ourselves, others and the mystery
Green – Grow by exploring what is true and right in life
Blue – Believe in your ideas and act on them
Indigo – Insist on a fair and just world for all
Violet – Value our home, the earth that we share with all living beings
Parents often start attending Unitarian Churches when their children are young because they want to instill in them values and life lessons such as these while exploring multiple belief systems and faiths so their children can develop their own spirituality and credo. Currently, our children are participating in a program called the Toolbox of Faith, which uses different tools to explore different qualities and values.
If you would like to know more about our children’s program, join us on a Sunday afternoon or contact us.
