An important feature of the life of the Anglican Church in Luxembourg is our work with children. Our approach is based on open-ended questions and imaginative exploration because we believe children’s spirituality is lively and the Holy Spirit is at work in their lives. Our role is to facilitate what God is already doing. We therefore also aim to include children in meaningful ways in our collective worship when possible.
Our Junior Church is for children aged 3-10/11 and our Youth Group for 10/11-16 year olds. Junior Church meets whenever we are face to face, including as Forest Church once a month in the spring and summer. Youth Group meets monthly during a service as well as for socials and special events from time to time. All our leaders are trained and checked in compliance with safeguarding requirements.
As well as Junior Church and Youth Group during services we offer opportunities for whole families to engage together, for example at our Families & Faith service and at Wandering & Wondering. Please sign up for e-news to be kept informed of what is on offer week by week.
If you have any questions about any aspect of ministry to children, youth, and families please do not hesitate to contact Revd Evelyn Sweerts on curate (at) anglican.lu
Wandering & Wondering
Once a month we head somewhere new in Luxembourg to explore a story from the Bible or church feast out in nature. We usually have questions to wonder about as you wander about. Often there’s a simple activity or a short play performed by some of our youth group. Wandering & Wondering is open to all and an easy way for families to engage together. Please sign up for e-news to be kept informed of upcoming events
Families & Faith
The question that started the Families & Faith service is: what happens when we make the church the children’s space, open to all? In this joyful service, we are discovering the answer to that question together. We encounter God in new ways which are empowering and encouraging for the children and young people, as well as for us as adults. Come join us once a month for this collaborative ‘scratch worship’ service where we create the worship together, led by the children.
