Most importantly, we want children to know that they are loved, respected and valued at Church of the Resurrection in worship and in all aspects of community life.
Formal worship can provide an excellent opportunity for parents to be involved in the spiritual nurture of their children. Talk with them about the service. Explain what is happening.

There is also a children’s area at the front of the church complete with activities, scribble sheets and coloring supplies.
