Montessori School Partnership
In September 2016 All Saints' partnered with the Global Montessori School to bring a high-quality, affordable Montessori Pre-school to Belmont!
We committed significant resources to make the space exceptional and our Co-Rector, the Rev. Cheryl Minor, Ph.D., is part of the daily life of the school, offering Godly Play sessions to interested families, teaching music during the extended day, and helping out as needed.
A recent capital campaign enabled us to establish a scholarship fund for members who want to send their children. This will further strengthen our community's connection to the school.
We look forward to a long and successful partnership!

Our partnership with the school will incude the offering of Godly Play as an enrichment program for families who wish to participate. The Godly Play program at All Saints', known throughout the country as a "center of excellence", finds its roots in the Montessori movement and shares all of the hallmarks of a Montessori program.
The Rev. Cheryl Minor, Ph.D, a nationally known Godly Play trainer, will offer this program weekly. Dr. Minor is also the Director of the Center for the Theology of Childhood, the academic / publishing arm of the Godly Play Foundation. Her dissertation examined how Godly Play nurtures the spiritual well-being of children.

Stories from our Community
"I felt drawn to All Saints'. On the first day I attended, Paul [one of the Co-Rectors] greeted the congregation with a statement about his love for Jesus and described waking up early to spend some quiet time with Him. I was immediately touched by Paul's sincere faith and his open sharing of his personal religious experiences. I felt embraced and held by the quiet beauty of the church. I left All Saints' that morning feeling a sense of excitement. I knew I had discovered a church where real spiritual support is present. I sensed a dynamic quality at All Saints' - interesting, innovative programs in place with the openness for others in the future. I felt hopeful that I had found a church where I could settle in."
