Going for Growth
The Church’s ministry with and among children and young people is driven by a desire to engage with God’s mission here on earth. The Education Division of The Archbishops’ Council presented the report Going for Growth to General Synod in February 2010. It explores the current context of children and young people and calls the Church to action in its engagement with them at national, diocesan and parochial level.
Going for Growth offers:
- A snap shot of life for children and young people in England in 2010
- Examples of how the Church is engaging with children and young people in informal and voluntary settings
- A theological framework
- Guiding principles
- A missional context expressed in the Five Marks of Mission
- A call to action.
