Children and Young People

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 offer support, training and resources for all those involved in mission and ministry with children (0-11 years), young people (11-18 years) and their families.

We’re here for you!

Coronavirus

Many churches are currently working hard to provide ways for children, young people and families to worship while usual services and activities are suspended.

We are doing our best to support churches at this time by creating resources to help children and young people pray and worship at home and by signposting to helpful resources produced by other organisations.
