Why Sunday School?

Christians are deeply concerned about the secularisation of the rising generation lost to the Gospel. It is for this reason, over forty years ago, that Mrs Jill Masters and others at the Metropolitan Tabernacle saw the need to service the great Sunday School movement.

Since then, her evangelistic ‘Lessons for Life’ Sunday School resources have enabled a growing team of Sunday School teachers to gradually enlarge the Tabernacle’s Sunday School to over 1,000 children today.

Sunday School children around the world have voted by their attendance and we offer a wealth of Sunday School resources to others who see the urgent need to start or enlarge a traditional, Sunday afternoon Sunday School with abundant ideas for Sunday Schools and all other related activity.

Our Sunday Schools

We give a warm welcome to all children and teenagers who come along to one of our Sunday Schools or Bible Classes. Sunday School runs from 3-4pm every Sunday and is completely free. Newcomers are welcome to join on any Sunday, and parents can come to see what their children are taught.

Currently over 150 teachers and other staff operate our Sunday Schools in London, plus those who help with transportation, involving a fleet of 20 minibuses and numerous private cars. This not only makes it the largest Sunday School in London, but also in the UK.

The Sunday School calendar includes a summer outing for the children, and special anniversary, prizegiving and Christmas services (open to parents).

All teachers and regular assistants hold Disclosure and Barring Service certificates, and a Child Protection Policy is operated by the Tabernacle.

One of our minibuses or cars might be able to collect your children for Sunday School. Call us on 020 7735 7076 or email [email protected]
