Introduction to Sunday school

St John’s Cathedral Sunday school

*In light of the Government’s advice to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community, special measures are implemented during the operation of the Sunday school. Participants are required to follow the measures implemented. Details are provided separately.

The Sunday school is the Cathedral’s children’s programme which is integrated with worship. After Sunday school the children will gather with the congregation into worship during communion and participate in the service.

Our vision is to provide God’s people with good sound teaching and resources that empower all ages to be transformed in Christ as they:

  • Explore meaning and mystery in the Bible;
  • Celebrate in worship, sacraments education and service;
  • Engage in ministries of love, justice, and witness; and
  • Live in inclusive communities of faith shaped and led by the spirit.

Guided by the Cathedral clergy, the Sunday school is run by a group of dedicated volunteers with a curriculum to suit the age, interest and maturity of the students:

Primary School
Faith - over 2.5 years old
Hope - 3 years old
Love - 4 years old
Joy - 5 to 6 years old
Peace – 7 to 8 years old

Junior Church - 9 to 12 years old

Discoverers - Secondary / High school students

(* Ages are as of 30th September of the Sunday school year)

The Sunday school meets every Sunday starting at 9:00am (to approximately 10:15am) at the Li Fanny Li Hall / Li Hall / Harold Smyth Room of the Cathedral. The normal Sunday school runs from September to June while there is a special programme during the summer.

Besides the weekly Sunday school sessions, the Sunday school also holds special annual events including: -

  • Michaelmas Fair Musical;

  • Baptism and First Communion Classes;
  • Dim Sum Lunch Gathering;
  • Year-end Book Sunday;
