Children are invited and encouraged to worship with their parents in the Sanctuary. For young children there are “Activity Bags” on a stand in the narthex (at the back of the sanctuary). These contain quiet activities and a bulletin designed for young children.
If your infant or child needs care or becomes disruptive during the worship service, you may leave the sanctuary and return as you wish. There is a “Cry Room” at the rear of the sanctuary where you and your child are also welcome. A large window provides a view of the sanctuary and the service can also be heard through the internal sound system.
Good Shepherd has deliberately chosen not to have child care provided during the services as we believe it is important for children to be in worship.
