Children, youth & families
Our Children, Youth and Families Team works to advise, resource, train and equip people who work with children, youth and families in church, at school or at home.
Our Children, Youth & Families e-newsletter contains a snapshot of news, events and resources for those working with children, youth and families. It’s free to sign up and to make sure you don’t miss the latest information everyone with an active role in their church should subscribe.
If you would like to arrange a meeting with one of our team please use our online system to book an appointment.
