Event description

Description

Running a toddler group can be one of the most exhausting yet rewarding activities in our week. Trying to recruit a team of volunteers whilst planning crafts and ensuring health and safety issues are dealt with can be so challenging. This conference gives you the opportunity to spend some time relaxing and having fun with others who share the same passion for toddler groups. It is a day to listen to inspirational speakers whilst giving plenty of space to network, browse exhibitions and make new friends.

Our day is based on Matthew 11v28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

"Toddler Groups are one of the great ways that churches can serve their communities. They provide a place where families can be nurtured, children given stimulation and learning, and the values of the Christian faith can impact on peoples’ lives. Come to a day that is a really worthwhile place of cross-fertilisation, encouragement, prayer and support.” Rev Pete Broadbent, Acting Bishop of London

The conference will provide an opportunity to:-

  • be encouraged and envisioned regarding the work of parent and toddler groups
  • hear our key note speaker – Rev Mary Hawes (Anglican national children and young peoples advisor)
  • participate in workshops
  • network with colleagues
  • enjoy our exhibition including craft ideas, bookstall

You can choose 2 from the following workshops:

1) Rhythm of ‘The Story’

Do you tell a story in your session or is it your worst nightmare? What stories do you tell? How can we bring the Bible stories alive?

2) Rhythm of passing on faith

How do we, as toddler groups, empower parents to share their faith with their children?

3) Rhythm of crafts

Practical session

4) Rhythm of music

Explore ways you can develop fun and worship through music

5) Rhythm of TEAM

Having a team of volunteers is essential to every toddler group. Explore best practice regarding recruiting, retaining, encouraging including the importance of safeguarding.

Each of these workshops is a forum to bring and share ideas. Please feel free to bring any resources you use or have found helpful. We are aware there is a wealth of experience and knowledge in our toddler groups across London and we would love to enable people to share this.
