Sunday school is a class held in churches to teach individuals about Christianity. It is often catered to children and young adults, although many churches offer Sunday school classes for adults as well. Sunday schools were set up in the 1780s in England to teach working class children how to read and write and to give them an understanding of the Bible. However in present-day America, Sunday school serves as an accompaniment to church, rather than an educational institution.
