Children's work

Working with children can be a joy, a delight and a challenge. Attracting children and their families to church, and keeping them, requires prayer, commitment and training. The Diocese provides many resources to help parishes take seriously the Biblical instruction to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD” Psalm 78:4 

Church holiday club fun

Over the summer holidays numerous churches in the diocese run holiday clubs for children in their area.
