Event description



‘In many of our churches, children, young people and young adults are missing and the vast majority of adults in our population have not been introduced to church or faith as children.’ The Church of Scotland Radical Action Plan 2018

This is an opportunity to:
• Meet with others locally to share ideas, challenges and good news stories
• Explore creative and innovative ways to develop our vision and practice in nurturing faith with children, young people and families
• Encourage the development of a whole community of faith approach towards faith formation and ongoing discipleship

This event will be of relevence to you whether you are in a town or a rural setting; if you have a thriving children and youth ministry, few or no children. This will be of benefit for all who are interested and concerned about developing their church’s children, young people and family ministry. Attending with others in your congregations will encourage follow-up action after the event.

The event is free. Tea and coffee will be provided, but we ask that you bring your own lunch.

These events will be facilitated by the Children’s Development Worker of the Church of Scotland in collaboration with local specialists. For further information email:
