Gen2 Children

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 

Our new Gen 2 Children and Youth Team is here to support parishes to be truly intergenerational.

“one generation shall praise God’s works to one another” (Psalm 145:4)
