write to you, young people, because you are strong and the word of God abides in you…. – 1 John 2:14

A Place for Everyone
Adolescence occupies the liminal space between childhood and adulthood: perhaps more than any other stage of life, it is a time of questioning, self-discovery, discernment, and exploration. Here at Christ Church Greenwich, we seek to facilitate that exploration for middle school and high school youth, building on the foundations begun in our Children’s Ministries program.
We are currently in the process of expanding our Youth Ministry offerings over the course of the next year. Our goal is to provide meaningful, fun, and thought-provoking faith exploration and fellowship, as well as opportunities for service, prayer, and worship for youth in grades 6 through 12.
Our programs run from September/October through May. They include confirmation classes (for youth in 7th and 8th grades), a mission trip, our choirs, and participation in opportunities to serve others, both in the community and at Christ Church.
We want ALL of our middle school and high school youth to know that there is a place for each of them in the Christ Church Greenwich community!
Mission & Service
ruly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. -Matthew 25:40
In our baptismal covenant we are called to seek and serve Christ in all persons. Mission and service are an essential part of our life as Christians in the world. Christ Church Greenwich seeks to connect its youth with meaningful mission and service ministries in Greenwich and beyond. These ministries include serving with other guilds and ministries of our parish, such as serving as acolytes at Sunday worship.
Youth have joined mission trips where they have ministered with others to build camp facilities. It is our hope that by entering into ministry with others, rather than for others, our youth will have the chance to see how they can be instruments of God’s love and empowered agents of change in a hurting and broken world.

Christ Church Choirs
Along with younger children and adults, youth in middle and high school come together to lift their voices in praise and worship of God in the choirs of Christ Church Greenwich. Our choirs play a central role in the worship life of our congregation at weekly Eucharists and Choral Evensongs as well as performing in concerts and occasionally going on tour.
