Truly Being a "Child-Friendly" Parish

May 27, 2018


Welcome to Peace Church, where we place immense importance on being a child-friendly parish. Our community of believers recognizes the significance of welcoming and nurturing children as they embark on their spiritual journey. In this age of rapid technological advancement and evolving societal dynamics, Peace Church ensures that children always have a safe, inclusive, and supportive space to explore their faith.

A Nurturing Environment for Children

At Peace Church, we believe that every child deserves a nurturing environment to grow spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. Our dedicated team of clergy, staff, and volunteers works collaboratively to create programs and activities that cater specifically to the needs of children. We understand that children learn and connect with their faith differently, and we strive to provide a variety of engaging opportunities for them to explore their spirituality.

Engaging Sunday School Classes

One of the pillars of our child-friendly parish is our engaging Sunday School classes. We have carefully curated age-appropriate curricula that are designed to teach children about Christian values, morals, and stories. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable Sunday School teachers guide our young learners through interactive lessons, incorporating games, crafts, and discussions that help them understand and relate to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Children's Worship Services

In addition to Sunday School, Peace Church also hosts children’s worship services, tailored specifically for our young congregation members. These services provide an opportunity for children to actively participate in worship, fostering a sense of belonging and involvement within the larger church community. Children have the chance to lead prayers, recite Bible verses, and even contribute to the sermon, all under the guidance and support of our pastoral team.

Fellowship and Activities

At Peace Church, we understand that building strong relationships and fellowship is a vital part of a child's spiritual growth. We organize various fun-filled activities, retreats, and social events throughout the year where children can come together, make friends, and strengthen their bond with fellow believers. These events foster a sense of connection and encourage children to actively engage in the life of the church community.

Inclusivity and Welcoming All Children

Peace Church firmly believes in inclusivity and welcoming all children, regardless of their background or abilities. We continuously strive to create an environment where every child feels accepted, loved, and supported. Our facilities are accessible to individuals with disabilities, and we work closely with families to ensure that each child can fully participate in all church activities.

Special Support for Children with Additional Needs

We recognize that children with additional needs may require extra support to actively engage with their faith. At Peace Church, we provide specialized support for children with disabilities and other exceptionalities through our inclusive Sunday School classes. We work closely with families to adapt our programs and facilities to best meet the needs of each child, promoting a loving and inclusive environment for all.

Partnerships with Parents and Guardians

At Peace Church, we emphasize the importance of partnering with parents and guardians in nurturing a child's faith. We believe that when families actively participate in their child's spiritual development, it creates a strong foundation for them to grow in their relationship with God.

Communicating and Involving Parents

We maintain open lines of communication with parents and guardians through regular updates, newsletters, and parent-teacher meetings. This collaborative approach ensures that families are aware of their child's progress, upcoming events, and opportunities for involvement within the child-friendly community of Peace Church.

Parenting Workshops and Resources

Peace Church offers parenting workshops and resources to equip parents and guardians with knowledge and tools to support their child's spiritual growth. These educational events cover a variety of topics related to parenting and faith, providing valuable insights and practical strategies that can be implemented within the family setting.


Being a truly child-friendly parish is not just a label for Peace Church; it is a commitment to creating a nurturing, inclusive, and supportive environment where children can explore their faith and grow in their relationship with God. We invite you to join our warm and vibrant community, where children are cherished and celebrated as valuable members of the Peace Church family. Come and experience the love, guidance, and spiritual growth that Peace Church has to offer.
