The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Children's Ministries

Week of Wonder

We will follow in the footsteps of the Israelites as God used the Ten Commandments to show them love when they were in Wilderness.

A traditional week of Vacation Bible School for children ages 4 – 5th grade, we will enjoy the simple and relaxed joys that summer brings, using nature, art, music, play, wonder and, of course, popsicles. The Nurturing Center will be open for younger siblings by appointment.

Sunday Mornings 

The Godly Play philosophy permeates all that we do with children and families at the Cathedral. In short, that means that we take children and their relationship with God seriously and seek to provide both space to foster encounters with God and the language necessary to make meaning of those experiences. Within the Godly Play classroom, the Biblical narrative is lovingly presented to children using beautiful materials with an invitation to step into each story with awe and wonder. Children are then allowed time to respond to and reflect on their experience of the story.


StoryMakers is dedicated to creating new ways of sharing God's redemptive narrative found in the Bible. The hope is to share the Gospel with kids in a way that is meaningful, healthy, and ultimately draws children into God's story. This is done with magazines, vibrant visuals, imagination, play and fun.


EYSeedlings is a space reserved for 4th and 5th graders to support their faith journeys and encourage growth. It is an opportunity for older elementary school children to share in fellowship, deepen their relationship with God and explore new ways of worship. EYSeedlings meet monthly on Sunday evenings.

2023 Children's Stewardship Campaign

This year we are encouraging families throughout the Cathedral to make Stewardship a family habit! Stewardship chairs Ron and Kate Henry will lead the efforts in educating Cathedral children on the basic roles that money serves – spending on the here and now, saving for the future, and sharing with others in need. As part of the Lenten season, we are encouraging children to make their own pledges, sharing with the Cathedral community. .
