All youth in grades 6-12 are invited to get involved in our Episcopal Youth Community at Holy Comforter. We provide opportunities and resources for youth to dive deeper into Christian faith and practices, build relationships with other youth, serve our neighbors in the wider Burlington community and beyond, and have fun together.

Children's Chapel is during the 10:30am service and continues to be offered every Sunday. Children of any age are invited to participate in Godly Play - an imaginative method for presenting scripture stories to children. Just prior to the reading of the First Lesson, children may follow the Children's Chapel Leaders out of the sanctuary to the Godly Play room for the lesson, reflection, and snack time. They return to the sanctuary before the Great Thanksgiving begins. Godly Play does not run during the summer break.

is a gathering and social/learning opportunity for children and youth (ages 4 -18). We gather following the 10:30 service in the Great Hall every 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. (Please check the Holy Comforter website for the schedule). We begin at approximately 11:30 and LUNCH is provided! Children teach each other - with adult guidance - and learn lessons from the Bible by acting out the stories. Crafts and music are often incorporated into this experience. Children grow community, learn and have fun - all at the same time! We meet from 11:30 until 1:00. Parent and interested adults' involvement is welcomed.
