Trinity Church Boston’s Youth Ministries—designed for young people in grades six to twelve—is grounded in the conviction that faith happens in and through community.
We nurture a climate where young people are integrated into the life of the church and empowered to embody the extravagant love of God. We do this by recognizing and amplifying the life-giving talents young people have to offer the Church: gifts of urgent questioning, of devotion to justice, of energy, and of sensitivity to and scorn for hypocrisy. In the process, we recognize and address the special needs and challenges of adolescence: challenges of shifting identities, of navigating an increasingly unforgiving world, of growing into adult roles.
We think that an open mind and a healthy skepticism are essential elements of the Christian faith, and that spiritual development is more a process of cultivating a relationship with God than accepting a set of specific beliefs.
Youth Ministries at Trinity Church Boston are LGBTQ affirming.

Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to participate in the Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12) Forums, which meet from 10:15-11 AM on Sundays throughout the program year. Youth and their mentors explore urgent and timeless aspects of Christian faith through discussion and lively activity.
