Sunday School

Mt Waverley Christadelphians runs a Sunday School for children and young people with a focus on what the Bible teaches and how we should live as followers of Jesus Christ.

One hour classes are held most Sunday mornings from 9.30 am to 10.30 am. (except school holidays).  Details about the curriculum are given below.

There are classes for all ages from 3 years old to 18 years old

In addition to Sunday morning class, in December of each year there is a special evening for those that attend Sunday School that includes plays, songs and prizes.

Curriculum

There are 5 levels of Sunday School materials, which are provided by the Christadelphian Sunday School Association (www.cssa.asn.au):

  • Kindy – Ages 3 to 4
  • Primary – Ages 5 to 8 years
  • Junior – Ages 9 to 12 years
  • Intermediate – ages 13 to 14 years
  • Senior – Ages 15 years and over

Within each age category (apart from Kindy) there are 5 stages of studies which follow the Bible account.  Each stage of lessons covers a year.  In total the 5 stages contain 125 lessons which are designed to be applied over a five year cycle.

  • Stage 1. The Preparation of the Kingdom, Creation to Sinai (Genesis 1 – Numbers 10)
    Stage 2. The Establishment of the Kingdom, Sinai to Promises to David (Numbers 11-2 Samuel 11)
    Stage 3. The Glory and Decline of the Kingdom, Promises to David to Birth of Christ (2 Samuel 12- Matthew 3)
    Stage 4. The Royal Majesty of the Kingdom, Birth of Christ to Resurrection (Matthew 4 – John 21)
    Stage 5. The Good News of the Kingdom, Resurrection to Christ’s coming (Acts 1- Revelation)

This five year cycle covers the Bible’s history, provides the backbone to the story of the Bible and covers the major principles and doctrines which are essential for salvation. The materials are systematic and follow the Bible account chronologically, thus giving students a solid foundation to build upon. By following this system a scholar in their Sunday School life will generally cover the Bible at least 2 to 3 times, beginning at a basic level and progressing through more advanced levels.
