Emmanuel Sunday School

Sunday School at Emmanuel is again meeting face to face with COVID Safe measures in place as addressed in the COVID safe plan [here](https://emmanueluca.org.au/d/NaFYdxDfW1Y6QcXEX0IStEMGW).

Before you or your family attend Sunday School you MUST complete the online enrolment form [here](https://emmanueluca.elvanto.com.au/form/a5e52f18-e681-43e9-803c-7d761c3bea21)

We are also still encouraging households to continue with Faith at Home practices whether they attend weekly Worship and Sunday School or not. Dig in at Home resources that match and complement worship and Sunday School are available at www.emmanueluca.org.au/dig-in-at-home

Sunday School runs during school terms within our 9:30am Sunday Service and provides a time where children can share in fun, faith, friendships, and learn about Jesus.

Our leaders provide a range of varying experiences to help children draw closer to God through music, bible teaching, prayer, games, and creative activities. All our leaders are screened and trained and will love your kids almost as much as you do.

All children aged 3 - 12 are welcome and meet as one group in the Church Hall. A range of activities including games, craft, challenges, and small group time are provided to enhance age- and developmental- appropriate learning and connection for all.

Children will start each service in the church auditorium with the congregation for songs, prayers, videos, communion, and announcements and will move to the hall with their leaders when advised. In 2021 we will continue Digging into Foundation of Faith and follow the same readings and themes as Sunday Worship, learning more about the heart of God, and how to follow him.

To enhance child learning and discipleship, weekly Dig In @ Home materials are available at [www.emmanueluca.org.au/dig-in-at-home](https://vinteract.com.au/client/www.emmanueluca.org.au/dig-in-at-home), and we encourage you to connect with and talk about life and faith with your children during the week.

We look forward to "digging in' and connecting with your family soon.

Enoggera & District Eisteddfod

Hello friends of Enoggera Eisteddfod,

Good news, we will proceed with the Eisteddfod for 2021 after cancelling last year.

However, in order to comply with Covid and Uniting Church restrictions, there will be significant changes from previous years.

The Eisteddfod will be scaled down considerably with some sections removed. There will be no food or drinks available at any time, and there will be no Prize winners concert. We are currently working through the details and cannot be any more specific at this time. There will also be significant limitations on the number of family or friends who can attend with each Competitor.

There is much work to do and our plan is to revise the schedule and send it out probably late April with approximately one month to submit entries.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.

Kind regards,

Laurel

What is the Enoggera Eisteddfod

The Enoggera and District Eisteddfod has been an annual activity since its inception in 1960. It runs in August every year.

It provides an opportunity for young people up to 18 years of age to perform in front of an audience and to get feedback on their performance from highly qualified adjudicators in a friendly and safe environment.

Categories are

- PIANO

- VOCAL

- INSTRUMENTAL

- SPEECH AND DRAMA

The eisteddfod relies on volunteers and sponsors to remain viable and to keep entry fees as low as possible. If you can help in either way, please contact the secretary Laurel Muirhead.

Please email the secretary at eisteddfod@emmanueluca.org.au with any questions.

Stay tuned for Eisteddfod 2021 information.

Laurel Muirhead (Secretary)
