Then when Rev Ebenazer & Mrs Maria Daniel and three daughters arrived in the Island in 1830, they started Sunday Schools in all three languages ,English ,Sinhalese, and Portuguese.

In 1908 the International Sunday School lessons were adapted. The Ceylon Sunday Schools started to use the India Sunday School lessons and their examination papers after that.

The Sunday School is acknowledged to be the Nursery of the Church. So the future welfare of the Church is largely depended on the success of it’s Sunday School. Therefore the Church assigns very high priority and responsibility to uphold the work of Sunday Schools.

Each Baptist church in Sri Lanka typically has its own Sunday School program. Children learn stories from the Bible, memorize verses, and understand Christian principles. They participate in worship songs and hymns , Creative projects related to biblical themes , Christmas programs, Easter celebrations, and other events.

The Baptist Sunday School system helps children build a strong foundation of faith. It fosters a sense of community, friendship, and belonging among young believers.
