Sunday School Society
The Sunday School Society was founded in 1809 and has worked to promote the work of Sunday Clubs throughout the Church of Ireland.
The Society organise training for Sunday Club Leaders with the aim to help those starting for the first time, to provide training on specific topics or to encourage those who feel they need a refresher course. Training events are held in Rathfarnham Parish Hall and in different parish churches as requested. In the past parishes that training sessions have been held include Killorglin, Co. Kerry; Julianstown, Co. Meath; Cloughjordan, Co. Limerick; Killeshandra, Co. Cavan; Castlemacadam, Co. Wicklow. Last year we held a joint training evening with the Methodist Children’s officer Judith Rainey and this October we held a joint training evening with the Presbyterian Children’s Officer, Barbara McDade. The Society is also involved in the national Children’s Ministry Conferences ‘Building Blocks’.
