St Peter’s Cathedral Church has about 120 children aged between 3 years and 18 years. Every Sunday usually has two services in accordance with the church services schedule, with the sunday school service parallel to both services.
We have about seven teachers who are involved in the children ministry; planning activities and teaching during the service. Mrs. Faith muriuki is the Sunday School Coordinator and the liaison between the Sunday school teachers and the board.
There is a Sunday School Board composed of 15 members led by the Chairman, Mr. Gachugi Wambugu, the Patron Rev. Julia Mwangi and the Vicar, Archdeacon Mwangi Waweru. The treasurer is Lay Reader Michael Munene and the Secretary is the Sunday School Coordinator, Mrs. Muriuki. The board acts as the liaison between the Sunday School and the Church Council.
The Sunday activities include;
- Sunday service
- Conducting the Palm Sunday Service
- Fun day
- Teens’ excursion
- Teens’ conference, and
- The Vocational Bible School (VBS)
There is a Sunday school programme that is developed by the Diocese of Mt. Kenya West which guide the Sunday school lessons and provides the theme for the year. Each month has a topic of focus which carries throughout the month.
The theme for the year 2017 is taken from the book of John 15:12
“My command is this, 'love each other as I have loved you.'”

The Sunday School Magazine will be lauched on 25th March 2018 in the church. All support is welcome.
Children should be allowed to grow in the knowledge of the word of God from a young age so that they can stick to godliness throughout their lives. Remember that all children belong to God, so bring them forth and let them join the Sunday school.
