Event description

Description

The Diocese of Lichfield has a number of areas considered 'urban.' At this RNG Lab, Baptist Minister and current Anglican Pioneer Revd Sara Barron from The CUrbS Project will lead us on a day that explores how we might better serve children in urban contexts and share with them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The day will include space to learn new ideas and theory for ministry, reflect on our current practice, share experiences and eat lunch together.


CUrbS has 3 main aims:

  1. To promote an approach to working with children which starts in their world, recognises their developmental needs and values their spirituality

  2. To provide Christian resources for inner city children and those on outer urban estates for use in church-linked Sunday, mid-week, holiday activities and similar settings

  3. To provide support, training and encouragement for children’s workers in such areas by means of training and resource days, networking and partners

You can find out more about CUrbS on their website.
