Children’s Work

Nearly 1000 people in our diocese have indicated that they are involved in working with children and young people in our parishes and we are seeking to develop more support and resources for this growing and vital ministry.

Nearly 1000 people in our diocese have indicated that they are involved in working with children in our parishes and we are seeking to develop more support and resources for this growing and vital ministry.

General Synod recently noted in the evangelism task group report their recommendations that:

  • parishes and deaneries employ children’s and youth workers.  
  • deaneries should be encouraged to develop mission action plans for work with children and young people.
  • dioceses to prioritise evangelism and witness with younger people.

Our Growing Younger Task Group provides a forum to consider the implications of these recommendations alongside the areas identified in Growing in God report. Your views are most welcome.

Helen Woodroffe is the Diocesan Children’s Officer and Cathedral Education Officer.
She is available to parishes to offer support in developing work with 0-11 year olds.
