Trinity’s 10 a.m. Sunday School is fun and restorative for children and parents alike: Children from age 3 to 12 enjoy a snack, a Bible story, an activity and a prayer, while parents enjoy a little child-free time for coffee and supporting one another in raising children and living faithfully in today’s world.

Toddlers can stay with their parents or enjoy time in our staffed nursery room.

Godly Play Storytelling

With the advent of the Children of All Ages 9:15 service several years ago, Trinity Buckingham has a brand new cohort of families with young children. We are entering a new era of Family and Children’s Ministries with new Family Ministries/Godly Play coordinator Liz Oliver helping Trinity to chart some new territory.

A 40-year veteran of Children and Family Ministries at several Episcopal parishes in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Liz has recently completed training to become a certified Godly Play story teller.

The Godly Play Sacred Stories, Parables, and Liturgical Action stories will comprise much of the one-room school house Sunday School program to begin this fall on Sundays from 10 am to 10:45.

Sunday Suppers & Pajama Vespers

We also look forward to holding Sunday Suppers and Pajama Vespers to introduce each new season of the church year, starting this Advent. More information will be available shortly!
