Children and Youth

Latest COVID-19 Guidance

C of E’s up-to-date Guidance

Our aspiration:

Children and young people are part of a welcoming, enriching and safe worshipping community of every benefice and cathedral. They are provided with a supportive context for maturing in their faith, living out that faith in practice. Every child in a Church of England school encounters Christ and the Christian faith in a way which enhances their lives.

From Goal 5 of the Diocesan Strategy

The Children, Young People and Families Team support parishes as they seek to develop and extend their mission and ministry with children, young people and their families. The team are based in the diocesan offices but operate across the whole diocese.

We work in a variety of ways, including facilitating discussion, delivering training, providing practical support and information, updates on resources and up-to-date details of research and thinking in the areas of mission, ministry and children and young people’s spirituality.
