We believe children and young people are deeply loved by God and are valuable members of our church communities.
We want to see children and young people:
- growing in number in our churches as they hear of God’s love
- growing deeper in faith as disciples of Christ
- growing as leaders and using their faith to impact others
We care about the spiritual nurture, discipleship and wellbeing of all children and young people and believe that their voice should be heard. We want to encourage, guide and challenge churches to see young people not just as the leaders of tomorrow but as the church of today.
We’re here for you!
Our bishop Bishop Jonathan, has already highlighted that he will prioritise our work with children, young people and young adults. As part of that, he has indicated that our diocese will be involved in a national project that brings together schools churches and households. It is called ‘Growing Faith’, and you can read more about our involvement with it here.
