Families are invited to a joyful, warm, welcoming, and engaging 30-minute Episcopal church service designed specifically for children through fifth grade but open to children of all ages. The service includes scripture, a short sermon, and music both traditional and new. Together we will express and encounter the deep truths of our faith in language and action accessible to everyone. 

You can tune in on our home page or on the Family Service event on the web calendar. You can also join a watch party with other families and stay for Children's Time at 10am—just register here for the link. 

Families are also invited to join Sunday's 11:15am worship service on our website or on Facebook, or any of the other numerous worship opportunities. Learn more about online worship here.

Children’s Time

Sundays at 10am, September-June 2021, online

Children and their families are invited to learn together Sunday mornings. We’ll begin with an opening assembly, including a prayer and a song, then break into small groups for a time of exploration and community.

  • Godly Play (4 years–5th grade): An interactive storytelling "circle" of wonder, faith, and play followed by hands-on activity and sharing.
  • Whole People of God (2nd–5th grades) An interactive multimedia exploration on the week's liturgical themes with hands-on arts activities and sharing.

Register here for the online sessions. A link to the virtual gathering will be emailed to you (The link opens early for a Family Service watch party at 9:15am—join us!).

Talking Drum, Global Heartbeat

First Wednesdays Nov 4-June 2, 4:30-5:15pm

One of the great opportunities of our time is to recognize the sacredness of everyone and everything – and to celebrate our interconnectedness! Talking Drum, Global Heartbeat is a 45-minute online opportunity for families with children in preschool through fifth grade to build a set of world rhythms and diverse spiritual practices to do right at home. Each session has three parts: a drumming lesson from an expert teacher, a spiritual practice to try together, and an introduction to family traditions from around the world.

Register here.

 

Trinity Youth Chorus

The Trinity Youth Chorus brings together talented youth ages 5 to 18 from the five boroughs of New York City. Choristers receive both group and individual training in vocal technique, music theory, sight-reading, and performance skills from a group of dedicated professionals led by Melissa Attebury, Trinity Wall Street's Associate Director of Music and the Arts.

During the pandemic, choristers continue to meet and rehearse online and provide regular worship music for Family Worship: Home Edition, a worship resource for parish families. Learn more.
