With Murray Wilkinson (Children & Young People’s Adviser Diocese of Canterbury) and Rev Mary Hawes, (National Children & Youth Adviser CofE).

All age worship has all ages present embodying the truth that the whole church is the body of Christ. However, people often ask what to do with the young ones - nobody ever debates about whether adults should be "in" worship.

Howard Vanderwell defines intergenerational worship as "worship in which people of every age are understood to be equally important. Each and all are the church of now”.  As part of Live-Pray-Serve within our diocese you are invited to a challenging and practical morning exploring what it means and how we might be able to create spaces where all generations can gather in worship.

The cost is £5.00 to be payable on the day. Refreshments and materials included. Numbers are limited.
