How will participating in SRI help my child?

A child's overall wellbeing is built by many different experiences, people and knowledge. Spiritual wellbeing is often overlooked as a critical component of a child's overall wellbeing development and strength.

Research suggests that a child's spiritual wellbeing is strengthened by a sense of meaning, hope and purpose; by having a set of spiritual beliefs and by participating in a religious community for at least one hour per week. Beliefs that are not affirmed and practised within the context of community contribute less to a child's overall spiritual wellbeing.

In SRI your child will learn about the Christian faith and how all relationships may be positively impacted by this faith: their relationship with themselves, with others, with the world and with God.

SRI is a safe place for your child to learn about Christianity, which has had a huge impact on Australian values, language and institutions and is followed by millions of people worldwide from all cultures.

Your child will be introduced to the main beliefs and stories of the Christian faith and to participate in activities that explore the day-to-day relevance of these beliefs. They will have the opportunity to connect values such as care and compassion with the biblical stories that so powerfully illustrate these values.

They will be offered an additional lens through which to view the world, themselves and others.

SRI builds children's sense of value, meaning and purpose and helps to develop their social and emotional skills.

ACCESS ministries provides SRI in schools through accredited and approved SRI Instructors.

Why not enrol your child, allowing them the opportunity to learn about the Christian faith, from a person who has a personal understanding of what they are instructing?

A cost of $10 is charged for each child participating in the SRI Program.

Support your child's overall wellbeing. Enrol them in SRI in 2018.
