Children & Family Ministries
Living as Children of Light. 

Ephesians 5:8

At Christ Church Greenwich, we believe that children are full members of our church community and joyfully welcome their presence among us. We believe that children begin their spiritual journeys at a very early age, and we act in partnership with parents and our worship community to create an engaging, nurturing environment for Christian formation.

As the old saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child,” and we want to be part of your village. We have a wide range of volunteers who are dedicated to nourishing the spiritual lives of children. From clergy, to youth volunteers, to Sunday School teachers, to other parents, there are a variety of people here who are dedicated to showing children God’s love and support.

I would be delighted to meet you and your family.

The Rev. Abby VanderBrug
Director of Children & Family Ministries
