Catechism Exam

Are you looking for something positive for your children to do during the school holidays? Something that parents and children can do together? The 2018 Catechism Experience might be just what you're looking for. Learning these questions and their answers gives children the opportunity to learn some important biblical truths. But it also gives parents the opportunity to talk with their children about faith - and this is a conversation that many parents can find hard to start.
The chance to win a prize can be a good motivation too. You can find all the resources you need at cenc.org.au/catechism
If you are interested, please speak to Gerald or Craig.
