Trinity United Church in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada

Church School

To all Parents, Grandparents and Guardians: Your children of any age are welcome to stay with you during worship.  There is a comfortable area supplied with quiet toys and books at the back of the Sanctuary.

When Church School at Trinity resumes, we will use as curriculum Godly Play which has been around for several decades and is based on the Montessori method of teaching. The flow of Godly Play follows the flow of a worship service and a foundational understanding of Godly Play is the inherent spirituality of children. The children are encouraged to enter into the story and explore their own faith by being asked “I wonder…” questions. They are then asked to respond to the story in whatever way they choose – stories, play dough, drawings, etc.

The stories are told with the help of little wooden figures, pieces of felt, candles, or sand. As the children sit in a circle and watch the story unfold before them, they will learn about the sacred stories of our faith, the parables, and the liturgies of the church, such as baptism and communion.

All children and youth from JK through High School are welcome to join us in our sacred circle.
