Welcome to Youth & Children’s Work
Children and young people are welcome as significant members of every church family and every parish. They are our God given heritage, children were blessed and called by Jesus and they with all generations are promised the gifts of the Spirit. How can we help each parish to enable the children and young people in their communities and churches to grow in faith, to encounter Christ and to transform their world?
Diocesan Children’s Mission Enabler, Margaret Pritchard Houston, is here to offer support and to resource all those working with children aged 0 – 12 years in churches and their communities.
Diocesan Youth Missioner, Christian Cole, is here to offer support and encouragement to churches and their communities in welcoming and growing young disciples, aged 11 years plus.
Youth Relaunch Grants
Do the young people in your community need a boost? We’ve talked to many of you who have kept things going with your young people, under very difficult circumstances, and we want to encourage you all to celebrate being together again in person. The Diocesan Reaching New People team is making some more snap grants of £250 available from their grant funding budget to provide the opportunity for you to gather and bless your young people in the run up to Christmas. For more info, download the Youth Relaunch Grants information sheet.
