Scripture in Schools
St Nicholas Parish has been supporting the local schools within the Marrickville community for close to 4 decades with the scripture programme. St Nicholas has parishioners who kindly volunteer their time to help children learn about the Orthodox faith and God.
St Nicholas parish currently supports a number of schools with our Orthodox scripture programme and serves 6 primary schools (TEMPE PUBLIC SCHOOL, DULWICH HILL PUBLIC SCHOOL, FERNCOURT PUBLIC SCHOOL, WILKINS PUBLIC SCHOOL, WEST MARRICKVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOL, MARRICKVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOL) students. The programme is conducted in English to make it easier for the children to learn and understand.
The scripture programme is specifically designed to educate young children on the Orthodox faith in an easy and enjoyable way. The programme covers topics such as the love of God, learning of our Saints and Martyrs of the church, lessons on the Bible and the various holy events of the church.
We are constantly seeking for volunteers to support the scripture programme for those who can volunteer one hour of their time per week. If you are interested in being involved please contact the Parish Priest on 9558 4453.
