All children are invited to join us for Children’s Church, which runs during term times in the 10.45am Sunday services. Two PVG cleared adults take the children down to the hall to play games and enjoy craft activities together, while the adults enjoy the sermon. Depending on individual family wishes, the children can be brought back into the church to partake of communion with their parents. If you have any questions, email Kristee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and Young Adults
All Students and Young Adults are warmly welcomed to attend our services, as well as our monthly social events. We run a range of activities, including meals, bowling, cinema trips, walks and mini golf. It’s always a lot of fun and a great place for new connections and friendships.
Please keep in mind that the minimum age for these social events is 18, for child protection and also because we sometimes go to a local pub or have alcohol at our events.
Please email Kristee if you would like more information: email@example.com.
Plus other ad hoc activities: country walks, quiz nights etc. Information about these can be found here: https://stpetersedinburgh.org/students-young-adults
Children and Music
All children of school age, from age 8 to 17/18, are welcome to join the St Peter’s Choir. Run by Rupert Forbes and Sheila Chisholm, junior choristers rehearse together on Thursday evenings during term time 6 – 7 pm. We cover sacred music from the Renaissance to the present day.
Sheila also teaches the Royal School of Church Music Voice for Life syllabus. VfL helps singers develop with vocal exercises, posture, breathing and diction; listening skills, music theory and notation.
Children sing alongside the adult choir on Sunday mornings 10am – 12pm, and have the option of singing at Evensong at 6.30pm, usually on the last Sunday of the month. During the 10.45am service, depending on their age and wish Junior Choristers go to Children’s Church, or do quiet but fun church related activities at the organ during the sermon and Intercessions. They then join the choir again at an appropriate time.
“St Peter’s junior choir has taught my son to read music and sight sing. It taught him the musical theory that his otherwise wonderful violin teacher didn’t cover. A first rate musical education.” Liz, mum of a chorister.
If you’d like to know more about what is involved contact Rupert via the office, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
St Peter’s Toddler Groups run every Monday and Thursday during term time, 10:00 – 11:30am. All parents, grandparents and carers are very welcome. We offer barista coffee, tea and snacks, as well as loads of fun for the children. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Kristee at email@example.com.
