Announcing a new resource for work with children and young people


The Church of England's Children's Advisor, Mary Hawes, has announced the launch of a new website of resources to support the Church's work with children and young people. It follows the Going for Growth report which went to General Synod last year. The intention is for the site to continue to grow with new resources, articles and information posted regularly. If you register, you are able to access all the areas, as well as contribute items if you wish.

Although the site seems to be a bit slow, after a quick glance through the materials which are already available I thought it looks very promising. Certainly in our scattered Diocese in Europe, congregations which have work with children or young people, or who are looking for ideas to begin and continue such work, will find web-based resources to be very handy!

You can reach the new website here.

If you are interested in the General Synod report of January 2010, Going for Growth, it can be accessed here. Much of the report assumes an English context, but there are some very good theological principles outlined in it, and some excellent mission challenges in terms of work with youth.
