Time of sessions
We are currently running fortnightly sessions for both age groups: 3-5 year olds on Saturdays 9.45-11.00 and Sundays 2.30-3.45; 6-12 year olds in two different groups on alternate Wednesdays, 4-5.30. See recent posts for the current term’s dates or search “session dates”.
Registering your child/ren
At this time, all sessions are full and we are taking a term by term approach to deciding when we are able to start new children. We are also praying for more catechists so we can start more sessions in the future!
Please use the form below to make sure your child/ren is/are on the waiting list and we will contact you to discuss when we think they might be able to start.
When we are ready to start a new group, we will run a compulsory orientation session for new children. This is very important as it allows us to introduce the atrium (most likely a very different learning space to others they have encountered) without the distraction of other children who have been in the atrium for some time.
To help cover costs we ask for a donation of $10 per child per term, with $5 for each additional sibling. Compared to swimming or music lessons this is very little, and with infinitely more benefit! We also ask for your ongoing prayers in this wonderful and challenging work.
If you would like your child to be involved but are finding the cost an obstacle, please contact us and we can make confidential provisions so your child does not miss out. There are also other ways you can contribute to the atrium and we ask that you prayerfully discern which ones will work for you. (See below.)
If you want your child to be involved but the times don’t work for you, why not consider becoming a catechist or helping us find more catechists so we can offer more sessions? Training will take place in January/Feb 2017. If that’s not an option either, consider committing to a plan of prayer for that intention, and God will provide.
