A Child centered theology ...
Here at St Andrews we are guided by a child centered theology. This means we honor the Childs spiritual journey as being as relevant and essential as the adult faith experience.
In the Gospels Jesus put a child in the centre of the disciples when they were having a theological argument about greatness in the kingdom of God. It is plain that Jesus thought the child's presence would give the disciples a clue to the essential truth they were missing.
The Sacred Child
Every week the children are present for the opening gathering, they then come forward for sacred Child Sacred Space: a time of embodied creative storytelling and then are welcome to either stay or go into CHAT 1 (school age) or CHAT 2 (under 5). These programs are led by folk in our community and by our Artist in Residence.
