The St George's Christian Education Curriculum. Fr. Erich Zwingert of the Anglican Province of America recommends this highly. He writes, "Eight years ago, a group of lay people interested in ministering to children and young people at St. George's Church in Halifax, Nova Scotia, began developing a Christian Education Curriculum for use in Anglican Sunday Schools and confirmation classes...centered in Holy Scripture...and the Book of Common Prayer."
Material covered includes (a year for each of these subjects) the Prayer Book Catechism, The Church Year, Notable People and Events in the Bible, and Significant Figures in Church History. Guiding principles of the curriculum are theological integrity, flexibility and user friendliness. Activities, games, songs and a focus statement or theme summary are part of every lesson, to be used with older or younger children, in large or small groups.
