A Place for Kids 

ACCEPTANCE + Wonder + Community
Ages Birth through 5th Grade

Here at St. Bart's, we want our children to know from day one that they are known and loved, that they matter, and that they are invited to join with God's people to build a more beloved community—a world where justice, kindness, and compassion reign. We also believe that children have a natural sense of spirituality and that faith is caught more than taught. We offer programs each season to engage our kids in the stories, teachings, and love of Jesus to help grow the faith that is already within them.

Choristers

St. Bartholomew’s Chorister program was founded in 1995 by reaching out to children and families throughout the five boroughs of New York City. The program consists of thorough musical education, sustained by rehearsals throughout the week, singing at the 11am service, concerts, trips, and an annual late summer choir camp.  Participation in the choristers typically begins at age 8 and up.  To find out if the Chorister program might help develop and support the musical interests of a young person you know, please contact Associate Organist and Choirmaster Alexander Pattavina.
