Children, Youth and Families

Our vision is to see children and families being encouraged and nurtured in our churches and being part of our worshipping community so that together we discover God’s kingdom and grow the Church.

We work alongside parishes supporting them to create and carry out a vision for children’s and family ministry in their context, and to explore resources for developing this ministry.

Key resources:

COVID-19 Support for households, parents and children – fear, grief and saying goodbye
Growing Together – resources and teaching (including on Covid-19)
Prayers – general, themed and seasonal
Baptism – Good practices & national resources
Ideas & activities – General and themed content
Ministry – Resources, news & events

We offer advice and ideas so that every church can be a hospitable church in which children and families feel welcome either as regular congregation members or occasional visitors.

We wish to help and support you as you serve God and serve children and families in your parish. Termly, we hold a forum gathering open to anyone working with children and families. On this website you will find various ideas and resources.

Here to help you are Jo Wetherall, Children and Families Officer, and Natasha Kent who supports Jo. Their contact details are:
