Intergenerational

Our special Intergenerational Church School days intentionally take into account the fact that there are learners of different ages and experiences in attendance. The programs seek to teach to the hearts of everyone present.

Intergenerational teaching and learning benefits both adults and children. It provides opportunities for all generations to understand the material differently and benefit from another perspective. It is a unique opportunity for the young to learn from the old, and for the old to learn from the young.

Examples of past Intergenerational programs include: World Communion Bread Making, Advent Wreath Making, Advent Spiral, and Holy Week Walk.

While we would like to strongly encourage participation from people of all ages, United Parish Safe Church Policy requires that children be accompanied by an adult.

Easter Egg Hunt
Posted: Apr 6 2022 - 8:50pm

You are invited to gather with children and parents from the United Parish in Brookline for an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 16 from 9am-11am in Memorial Park. Our egg hunt begins at 9:30 (second round at 10am), and we will have an egg decorating table for some artful, intergenerational Easter fun! There will also be games and egg-hiding opportunities for our older children and youth. Please bring a basket for collecting eggs, and a blanket to sit on and look over your treasures collected. In case of bad weather, we will host the event inside United Parish. Come for lots of fun for children and adults - and of course, Easter treats. Contact nursery@upbrookline.org.
