Discover Communion!

Discover Communion!

Discover Communion! is a 6-session course for children from year 2 – 6 that offers a safe and imaginative space to ask questions and explore questions surrounding Communion, Church, and the Christian faith. This course is for children who are interested in learning more about these topics, would like to receive Communion for the first time, or who already receive Communion but aren’t quite sure why!

Led by our clergy team, John, Rachael and Liz, there will be an hour of discussion-based learning, encouraging creativity, imagination, and the courage to seek a personal understanding of what ‘Communion’ or ‘the bread and wine’ means in the context of the Church of England. These sessions are open to all children of all abilities and disabilities and regardless of prior faith experience. 

Saturday 16th April 2022: All children who complete Discover Communion! are invited to join us for a trip to Go Ape Battersea Park, where we will complete the Tree Tops’ Adventure Course, discuss questions of faith, courage and what it means to live out an identity as ‘One Body of Christ’ today. There will be a £25 suggested donation for this trip.

Sunday 17th April 2022: All children will be invited to our Easter Day Family Communion, where they can take Communion for the first time or in the context of this special service.

There are two options for sign-up for 6 sessions that will run after February half-term until the Easter Holiday (24th/25thFebruary – 31st March/1st April): 

Year 2 After-School Club on Thursdays at Dulwich Village Infants’ School (3:40 – 4:40pm in Hepworth Class)

 Years 2 – 6 on Fridays at St Barnabas Church (4 – 5:30pm with pizza supper!)
