EVENTS ORGANISED BY OTHER ANGLICAN CHAPLAINCIES IN SWITZERLAND

SACEP INVITATION   to a day all around Children and Youth issues and especially the role of ‘Sunday School’ in church life. 

ON:       Saturday 19th October 2019 

AT:        St Andrew’s Church Zürich

WHEN: 9.30am for coffee, 10am start – 4pm finish

  “Let the little children come to me and do not stop them.”  Luke 18:16

The Church of England believes: “that children and young people can follow Jesus and be full members of the church, and that discipleship is possible at any age. They are integral to our churches, but we need to make sure there are no obstacles preventing them from getting involved.”  (from the CofE website)

The day will be led by Mary Hawes – the Church of England’s National Children and Youth Advisor. Mary’s role includes resourcing and advising the Church at National and Diocesan level in its ministry with children.

The information collected recently by Vahe Jebejian and issues arising from Archdeaconry Synod on 22nd June, will help to form the Agenda on the day.

Obviously, this day should especially interest those who work with our children but it is open to anyone – after all children are a vital part of our Church family, not just because they are             it’s future but primarily because we want them, too, to know God’s abundant love for them and for the world they live in.

Please register with Elizabeth Bussmann-Morton Environment Officer for the Anglican Diocese in Europe    at bemdeo@gmail.com by Mon. 14th October 2019.  

Cost for the day is Fr.20.00 including refreshments and lunch (please let me know if you have any allergies!)
