All recent Sunday School Packs can be found here: Sunday School Packs
It has been so lovely to see so many of you at the recent picnic church sessions and, as it’s been so popular, we have decided to continue running the services through August. We are now offering the following Sundays (instead of the planned Connect sessions at the vicarage):August 8th, 15th, 29th & Sept 5th.9.30-10.15, behind St Mary’s Church, Please book for these services as before by emailing FamilyWorker@burleyparishchurch.org.uk
Each week we will continue to offer a story, a making, a trail, songs, games, prayers and more! Join us for some Sunday morning fun!
On August 22nd we will be joining with Praise in the Park as part of the Burley Festival, and we will have activities for the children there – no need to book for this service.
Just a reminder we will be in the park for games and chat on the following dates: August 10th, 12th, 17th, 19th 2-3.30pm – weather permitting! – no booking required, join us if you can. Also, to remind those of you with children 11+, we would love to see them at our BBQ on 17/7 5.30-7pm at the Vicarage ( 21 Southfield Rd) if they would like to join us.
Wishing you all a great summer break

Private Facebook Sunday School Group!
This group is a platform for families to interact with our Sunday School teachers! This group will have content shared from our teachers and things shared that they enjoyed and want to share with our families and children! But, do not fear, if you do not have Facebook all our original content will be shared on our website, along side any videos and songs we want to share with you!
All the content on this group, will be found on this page, just scroll to the bottom!
Keep your little ones dancing and worshipping at home. Try listening to a few of these child friendly songs on YouTube. Below are a few links to a few songs and playlists that are upbeat that will get your children dancing, bringing a bit of Sunday school and Tea and Toast home to you all.
Keeping Active at Home:
We know that little legs have got to run and keep bouncing around, with this in mind Joe Wicks and other fitness instructors have done child friendly programs for those that are staying at home and staying safe! Find below a link to the first Joe Wicks live school workout that is daily at 9am.
As most children, apart from those whose parents are key workers, they will be at home. Most schools will have sent home many resources to keep their education going, but this can be a great task and can feel stressful for parents. There are many useful websites and book available, however I would recommend the BBC Bitesize website (link attached below) as a source of educational resources, games and quizzes for many ages.
If anyone is struggling to find resources or need new ideas, please do not hesitate to get into contact. Contact details for our family and children’s worker is above.
Bringing Sunday School home…
We know how important Sunday school is for the little ones in our community, with this in mind there are so many resources that are available for you and your children. Find below some links to a website called Flame Creative – there are many activities that can be done at home with things you find at home! How easy is that?! Find attached activities to do with hope, healing and trust. Something that in these next few weeks we will all need to be thinking about.
Colouring and other activity recources…
Find below links to printable colouring in pages that are faith based for reflective times and for those children that might be anxious. Colouring will help them centre their minds and relax whilst being at home. If you struggle or are unable to print any of these off, please contact us and will be more than happy to help families out with resources.
We will be updating the website regularly to keep things new and fresh with new activities, songs, videos and games! So you and your family can get the most of the isolation.
Blessings to you all from us all at St Mary’s!
