The origin of the modern Sunday School, also known as church school, or Christian education can be traced back to the work of Robert Raikes (1736–1811), a newspaper publisher in Gloucester, England. It aims to impart the teachings of Christ and the Bible, to children and young people.
Within the Cathedral we have the following set up of the Sunday School;
Upendo Class: 3 to 6 years old children
Amani Class: 7 to 9 years old children
Tumaini Class: 10 – 12 years
Teens Class: 13 – 19 years
Boys and Girls Brigade
The girl’s brigade is a Christian disciplined and uniformed group that helps young girls to become followers of our lord Jesus Christ with an aim of extending Christ’s kingdom among the girls covering an age group of 6yrs to 14yrs, the group helps the young girls have a sense of responsibility through self control and find true enrichment in life.
The boy’s brigade covering the same age group also aims at promotion of habits of obedience, reverence, discipline, self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness, with the motto “sure and steadfast” (Hebrew 6:19), the group gears the boys towards advancement of Christ’s kingdom.
The boys and girls brigade through various activities gives the children an opportunity to develop mind, body and spirit in preparation for a life of useful Christian service and witness. This is through their Saturday meetings at the church compound at 2:00pm.
Collectively it tends to shape the children in four aspects namely spiritual, education, social and physical aspects. We strongly believe in yielding young individuals who will be strengthened to face any challenges of their present days
