Children's Worship

A crèche is provided for younger children and a Sunday school for older children, taking place during our main service, High Mass.

Crèche offers a safe and fun place for the youngest members of the congregation to play and grow in faith.

In Sunday school, children are encouraged to learn and experience church life through Godly Play and other activities.

Crèche is provided all year round; Sunday school throughout the academic year (mid-August to June).

Child Protection Policy

Old Saint Paul’s has adopted the following policy statement for Child Protection:

“The Scottish Episcopal Church recognizes the special status of children and young people.  Because of their vulnerability, children and young people will be awarded special protection.  They are to be respected as a person in their own right, created and loved by God.  We, therefore, commit ourselves to take all steps within our power to keep children and young people safe from physical, sexual and emotional harm.”

Old Saint Paul’s follows the guidelines of the Scottish Episcopal Church on safeguarding the welfare of young people and children and its procedures for good practice.

It is important to remember that the safeguarding message is for everyone in our Church.  Our young people need to feel safe and included in order to participate in the life of our Church.

If a child or young person were to disclose to a volunteer that they have been subjected to any form of abuse, the volunteer will follow SEC guidelines to handle the situation appropriately and refer the situation on to the Children and Vulnerable Adults Protection Coordinator, Norma Walker.
