St. Mary's Church, Denville, NJ
We welcome children to St. Peters.
Its only natural for parents to feel a bit anxious about bringing their children to church. We at St. Peters would like to reassure parents that we are fully accecpting of young children and all their ways. We simply delight in having the presence of children in the church and offer our support to parents and caregivers.
Our Childrens Committee are currently exploring new oppotunities and programs to offer our school aged children at in 2018. We welcome parents and the children/young people to be a part of this process.
There is a well-stocked creche space availiable for under-fives.
Some older children take an active part in services. We encourage an intergenerational approach to leading worship and are seeking to build great reltionships between the young and the old amoungst us.
On a Friday morning there is an active young mothers craft group
Family fun/game nights have been held during the year involving all the children, congregation and Friday craft group mums.
