Sunday Service

At this time, we are not offering childcare during our Backyard Gathering service.

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.

A nursery is available for children up to age 5 during the service when they will hear a Bible story and have free play time.

Children’s Chapel is for children from age 6 to 4th grade. They leave the service after the gospel reading and return either at the time of the Eucharist or at the end.

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.
