Helping with Development

The national Youth and Children's Office Team is here to help leaders develop themselves and their programmes

We help individual workers to enhance and share their skills. This may mean attending an international conference, supporting a national youth event, leading a workshop at a coaching event, or something no one else has done before!

Closer to home, we help churches to enlarge their experience by finding relevant Christian programmes in their area that are worth visiting. Sometimes it is more useful for us to visit to see what you are already doing and help with ideas and development. Often it is just good to know that someone is interested and has useful suggestions to make.

Sometimes this support leads to direct hands-on work. From time to time we deliver holiday club programmes, provide training or help churches with launching and publicising new initiatives. Alongside area children's workers, our aim is to serve your church and strengthen its ministry with children and young people.

Any Federation church can ask for our help at any time. If we can't visit you straight away, we'll say so and agree a more convenient time. You have only to ask!
