Kirkmaiden Sunday School
Fancy dress sponsred walk raising money
We have around 20 children on the roll at present. Ages range from a few months to nine years, the average age is six. Nearly all the children came for baptism as babies and stayed ever since. It is wonderful having parents who take their vows seriously.
Our aim is to introduce them to Jesus and help them see him as their friend. It’s also important for them to learn that being his friend means we have to show love and concern for others.
They do this with great enthusiasm! Over the past three years we have supplied Guide Dogs For The Blind, Water Aid, local flooding appeals and for the Nepal Earthquake Helpline. At present (October 2016) Mary’s meals is our latest project.
It’s not only people, it’s for all God’s world we are asked to care for so on our annual outing the children went to the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and built a Bug Hotel.
We have a great time working with the children and a very loving congregation who welcome them every Sunday. Our new Minister, Rev. Chris has a special time with them each Sunday.
On Sunday 28th May 2017 the children set off on their annual sponsored walk to raise money for Christian Aid
14 children accompanied by 6 adults set off round the village and visited some of the older residents including Mrs Ena Scott, Mrs Lily McClymont, both aged 96 and Mrs Connie Keen who is in her 80's.
The children sang a song and enjoyed a chat with someone, in some cases, 93 years older!
On returning to the Chruch Hall a party was enjoyed by all and a medal was presented to each child. £290 was raised for Christian Aid
At the end of June the Sunday School enjoyed an outing to the Mull of Galloway. 'Fish Wishes' were made and displayed and the children enjoyed a well earned snack at the Gallie Craig restraunt afterwards
A great time was had by all. Some of the children even climbed to the top of the lighthouse!
During September 2018 our minister has exchanged ministries with Rev Lesley de Grussa from Australia. Rev Lesley has enthralled the children with some of the information about Australia. This is the card the children have all signed for Rev. Lesley to take back to Australia with her.
