Is your parish using the Compendium of the Church Mice Sunday School curriculum? General Synod staff would like to get your feedback as we work to improve this resource. Even if you’ve only been using parts of the curriculum, your feedback is welcome. Take the 10-minute survey now.
The Compendium of the Church Mice is a free, year-long church resource that weaves in the Marks of Mission. Currently, the curriculum runs from September 2012 until June 2013, though General Synod is seeking ways to extend the resource so that it is available for all three years in the liturgical cycle.
The compendium offers a mix-and-match approach that makes it flexible for many Sunday schools-rural, urban, large, and small. Teachers are invited to pick up seasonal big ideas, baking Sundays, and year-long challenges as they are able. The curriculum also includes special resources like a colouring book and teacher planning tools.
The compendium was written by Kate Newman, the youth and children’s ministry coordinator at Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver.
Ms. Newman was one of four women who won General Synod’s Marks of Mission Sunday school curriculum contest. In November 2011 she joined Kate Saunders of Richmond, N.B., and Janet Cress and Nancy Wilcox of Binbrook, Ont., for a weekend workshop in Toronto. They brainstormed ideas for the curriculum, with help from facilitator Susan Graham Walker.
