Since Anglican worship is largely experiential, a person does not have to fully understand it to participate in it. So you will find that most parishes will have an infant nursery, and a few will have a Children’s Church program (during worship) for children of school age. The hope is that kids will learn to worship by seeing adults worship, but hearing the music, and by receiving the sacraments. And the end result is usually that the adults are inspired by seeing the children brought to Jesus though their presence in Sunday worship. This may be different or new for some parents, but it is comforting to know that the adults generally expect and pray for kids to be present and so the sound of children making noise and stirring is considered an answer to prayer.
