ST. FRANCIS CHILDREN'S MINISTRY:
GOD'S BIG STORY

'Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, 
for to such belongs the kingdom of God.'
(Luke 18:16b ESV)

God's Big Story (GBS) is a ministry from the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) - a part of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) - which invites children to enter into the narrative of God's abounding faithfulness and love for all of his beloved children.  Our aim is that children and their teachers might hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and experience the fullness of new life in Christ as part of His body, the church. 


The curriculum is rooted in the incredible truth that God has come to rescue his children from their own sin through his Son Jesus Christ. It explores the biblical narrative from creation and the fall to Jesus' sacrificial victory on the cross to the promise of a new heaven and earth. GBS is taught in the context of worship through liturgy, song, scripture memory, story presentation, wondering questions, catechesis (teaching of doctrine and the faith), prayer, and many reflective and creative responses geared to a variety of age groups. 

Saint Francis holds children's teaching sessions in our dedicated classroom space every Sunday during our 10am service. Children are invited to begin the service in-church with parents/guardians, then exiting for their own activities at the Scripture readings, and returning to be with their parents/guardians again at Holy Communion until the end of the service.
