Kids’ Church & Nursery Care

Kids’ Church and Nursery Care are held each Sunday beginning at 10 a.m. and run through the end of the church service. They provide supervision and a safe, fun, and educational learning environment for nursery, pre-K and K-6 grade children.

The Kids’ Church curriculum is taught by volunteer parent and non-parent adult teachers, and it combines lectionary-based lessons with enhancements developed by our volunteer teachers. Children’s Chapel for pre-K through 1st grade is always part of our offering each Sunday.

Nursery

During the 10 a.m. worship service, infants through age 2 are looked after in the nursery by a paid caregiver and teen assistants. The nursery is located on the lower level of the Church School building, below the classrooms and next to the choir room.

Cathedral Choir

The Cathedral Choir (Children’s Choir) is an educational youth choir for treble voices in grades one through eight.  This ensemble invites youth from in and around the Milton area to learn about the fundamentals of music within the church, utilizing the Royal School of Church Music curriculum.  The ensemble performs at Family Services and special services throughout the year, including the Lessons and Carols service and the family Easter service.

Youth Group

Youth Group serves youth in grades 7 through 12 in the greater Milton area – membership in the parish is not required. The group typically meets twice a month, once on a Friday evening at the church with a second monthly activity/outing scheduled off-site at other times during the course of the weekend. The group endeavors to host events that are fun and exciting for our young people. We strive to offer opportunities for fun in a safe space that occasionally incorporates creative worship and community service while also strengthening the local community and forging deeper friendships within the group. Parents are always welcome to help with food, transportation and supervision.

Please contact the church office for more information.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a rite of the church that reflects a “mature public affirmation of…faith and commitment to [the] responsibilities of Baptism” for those who have prepared themselves and decided that they are called to a life of faith. Confirmation Class is approximately every other week on Sunday afternoons in the Upper Parish Hall, in addition to scheduled community service in the fall, winter and spring. Beginning in September 2016, Confirmation Class will be available for folks in 9th grade and above. Please contact the Rector for more information.

There are no Kids’ Church, Cathedral Choir or Confirmation Classes in the summer.

Adult Faith Formation

Faith formation is designed to support mature Christians along their spiritual journeys. Opportunities include:

  • Bible study every Thursday at 11am in the upper parish hall
  • Wednesday evening programs such as Inquirer’s Class and the Lenten series
  • Sunday forums following the 10am service
  • Small gatherings such as the Prayerful Parenting, Benedictine Cell, and bereavement groups
