There is no one "Episcopal Curriculum," other than the Catechism found in the back of the Book of Common Prayer. There are, however, some great curricula out there. One thing to remember when you chose a curriculum is that there is nothing completely "plug and play" - everything needs to be tweaked for the community.
Many parishes are realizing that traditional "Sunday School" no longer works for their church. That's ok! There are ways to form Christians without a traditional classroom. Click here to read more about that.

Formation in the Pews (aka Accidental Formation)
How do you help people learn things without traditional "teaching?" My favorite way is to make fun, accessible, and so they don't know that they're being taught.

Do you have amazing ministry that goes on in your parish or community, or perhaps something you're not yet doing that you want people to know? If so, tell them!

Reimagine Faith Formation
Children's faith formation addresses the unique life tasks, needs, interests, and spiritual journeys of children and their families. The eight faith forming processes provide the framework for life stage faith formation, in addition to life issues appropriate to that stage of life and missional initiatives to engage the spiritual but not religious and the unaffiliated and uninterested. The eight processes include:
Celebrating the Liturgical Seasons.
Celebrating Rituals and Milestones.
Reading the Bible.
Learning the Christian Tradition and Applying It to Life.
Praying, Devotions, and Spiritual Formation.
Serving and Justice.
