Children’s Chapel and Youth Group

At St. John’s, we seek to care for and shepherd all the children in our flock. We invite the participation of our children in the worship service and for special events.

Children’s Chapel is for children from age 3 to 4th grade. They leave the service after the blessing of the children and return either at the peace or the time of the Eucharist.

Care of Younger Children – Nursery: Most Sundays, we offer childcare for infants and toddlers in the nursery at the back of the church during the service. Parents are also invited to use the nursery for their littlest ones as needed.

Youth Group is for preteens and teens from Middle School up. It takes place most Sundays out of the month, and one other weekend on a Friday or Saturday evening. More information forthcoming.

Formal launch of Children’s Chapel and Youth Group will take place in mid September.

Safe Church

St. John’s enforces Safe Church protocol in the Nursery and Children’s Church and our teachers and clergy undergo a background check in addition to Safe Church training. The Episcopal Church of Connecticut’s Safe Church training is grounded in our call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and respect the dignity of every human being.
