We want your visit to St. Paul’s, Ivy to be a joyful experience for every member of your family. Here are some tips to help your family’s next trip be a success:


Pick up a worship bag filled with quiet activities on your way in.

Sit near the front, where children can see what’s happening without a sea of adults in front of them.

Help your child understand what’s going on by explaining parts of the service and actions of the participants to your child.

Sing the hymns, pray out loud, and voice the responses. This is a great way to introduce the liturgy to children.

 All children are welcome to join the procession to Children’s Chapel at the beginning of the service. They’ll be back just in time to take Communion with you.

We welcome children — wiggles, giggles, and all — to remain in the church for the entire service. However, if you or your child need a break, please feel free to come and go as you like. Please know that we understand you are the experts when it comes to your children – and we trust your judgment!

Check out the new Wiggly Worship Corner in the Parish Hall. It’s a great spot to take a break, and you’ll be able to keep up with the worship service broadcast on the TVs.
