Child Friendly Coaching
Being truly Child Friendly is challenging because the needs and mission of an all-age fellowship never stand still.
We have been running these successful events since 2012, involving over 130 people.
Being Child Friendly is the calling of the whole church, not just of those who lead children's programmes. So any members of the congregation are welcome and will benefit. The days bring people together to learn and grow so that their church can become a better place for children and young people to belong.
Each day runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm and includes lunch and a pack of resources to take away. It costs just £10 if you book ahead and £15 from the date specified on the individual event leaflets or on the day. Payment can be made securely online here, or a cheque (payable to 'Congregational Federation') can be posted to the Youth & Children's Office with the booking form.
Workshops will include: outreaching and building relationships; children's participation in church life; skills for ministry with children and young people.
The next event will be:
Saturday 5th November at Kingswood (Wotton-under-Edge)
Kingswood Congregational Church, The Walk, Kingswood, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, GL12 8RP
A generic booking form for all the events can be downloaded here. Please do check the individual event pages for more information.
If your church could benefit from this ministry, and would like to hear more, please contact the Youth and Children's Office.
