There was an excellent attendance for the wonderful service at Clough on Sunday, 18th June which was led by the children of the Sunday School. During the service the children gave readings, led prayers, sang, and acted out various Bible stories. It is so encouraging to see the Sunday School growing so much and taking part in worship with such enthusiasm.
Molly and Kayla introduced the service. Thomas read from Exodus chapter 14, helped by Hannah, Olivia and Abi. Kayla, Ethan, Sarah, Thomas, Zak and Molly led the prayers. Ethan read from Matthew chapter 8 with help from Harry, Eva, Anna and Lexie. Poems of Thankfulness were given by Charlotte, William, Sophie, Ethan and Lexie. The whole Sunday School sang ‘Who’s the king of the jungle’, ‘My God is so big’ and ‘If I were a butterfly’. Sarah sang the solo ‘For God so loved the world’.

Also during the service the minister presented the Sunday School members with prizes for attendance over the year as well as prizes won for their work entered into the denominational Sunday School Exhibition held at Holywood on 2nd June at which Clough won no less than 17 prizes. The work was on show in the church for everyone to see.
Over the year the children had also been raising money for their chosen charity and this year raised the magnificent sum of £300 which Ethan presented to Kirsty Smith for the work of Shine Northern Ireland.
Special thanks was extended to Sunday School Superintendent, Elsie Nelson, and to all the teachers and helpers who have contributed to the success of the Sunday School. Alfie McClelland played the organ for the congregational hymns.
