Remote Worship for Young People

April 06, 2020

We know that the suspension of worship effects people of all ages in our congregation. In an effort to ensure that the youngest members of our cathedral family can grow their faith from home, our Director of Children's Ministry Alison Barrington has curated a collection of remote resources for your family. 


For Songs & Stories and Godly Play sessions lead by Alison Barrington you can view from home, watch our Virtual Sunday School playlist on YouTube


For children school-age and above, we recommend Faith @ Homean online source of lectionary-based readings and reflections. 



Great for all ages, Virginia Theological Seminary's site Building Faith is full of resources, including their list of Easter book recommendations. 



For Pinterest users, follow Messy Church's Lent & Easter page for festive arts & crafts. 



Illustrated Ministry offers a printable PDF for some soothing coloring time for children.
