Jesus particularly welcomed and honoured children who are a blessing to the community with their own distinct contribution to make. St George’s employs a dedicated families and children’s pastor to develop and lead programs and activities that engage with the growing number of young families in the Paddington area. Intergenerational worship is a key component to our afternoon service with inclusive engagement throughout the service plus a dedicated teaching time for kids. Once a month we host a special gathering for families to go deeper together centred around the stories of Jesus.
Something New – monthly gathering
We have a once a month gathering of children and adults together exploring what it means to live the good life in God’s beautiful broken world – last Sunday of the month 3-5pm. Find out more about it here.
Sunday Afternoon – Intergenerational Service:
The children are much loved in our afternoon service at 3pm. We come together as a community – children and adults alike – gathering, worshipping and being equipped for the week ahead.
The service includes a dedicated time for children to be together with our Children’s Pastor and an assistant for fellowship and learning. The time might include stories, games, craft, prayer and sharing together.

SPECIAL RELIGIOUS EDUCATION – SRE
Glenmore Road Public School kindly invites St George’s Anglican to lead Anglican special religious education at the school. The opportunity to speak of God with and to young children is a great privilege. We see our role as one of wondering-beside the child about the Creator of the universe. We tell the stories of the Christian tradition so that children grow up with an understanding of the foundational stories that enrich so much of our broader culture. And we assure children of God’s love for them, especially in the person of Jesus Christ, the centre of our own faith, passed down to us through the rich heritage of the Anglican Church.
