Event description
Ideas on how to support and welcome children in church for those churches that do not often have children in the congregation

About this Event

Just as when you’re quickly pushing your shopping through the checkout and the machine suddenly announces that something has gone wrong, the appearance of a child, or several children, in your usually calm and quiet service can fill many congregation members with a feeling of sudden anxiety.

• We look at how you can be prepared for this and what resources would be useful to offer some spiritual input for a range of ages and interests.

• We’ll consider how much our own expectations and experience of children and their behaviour might affect the welcome we feel able to give.

• We look at ways of supporting carers/parents and involving children in the centre of worship as we seek to welcome them as Jesus did.
