Welcome to Sunday School

Sunday School takes place during the first half of service until the Peace. We are using a new curriculum, Living the Good News (see www.livingthegoodnews.com for more information). This is not only fun for the children (and instructive), but also easy to use (with little preparation) for teachers.
We would welcome some more help at Sunday school, so if you would like to help teach let Roxane Richards or Father Chris know.

If you would like your child or children to attend Sunday School, please fill in and return (to the the teachers) this Sunday School Registration Form

Germany has no special statutory reporting rules for child abuse or sexual misconduct. However, in their guidelines (Leitlinien zur Einschaltung der Strafverfolgungsbehörden), the “round table on sexual misconduct (Runder Tisch „Sexueller Kindesmissbrauch“) recommends that law enforcement authorities be informed when there is evidence of an offence under section 13 of the Criminal Code (‘Crimes against sexual self-determination’).

There is also a national helpline for those affected by sexual violence, for relatives, for professionals and for all interested parties. It is a point of contact for people seeking relief, counselling, support, advice, or information.
