There is a lot of exciting children’s ministry going on in Connor diocese and many talented people putting their gifts to good use for God’s Kingdom. This website is about celebrating the great things already happening, sharing good practice with each other and offering suggestions and ideas for how we can keep our children’s ministry vital, up to date, interesting, and most importantly God centred.

Children’s Ministry throughout Connor takes place in rural areas, towns and cities, among church families and families in the local community, at different times of the year, with varying amounts of resources and numbers of willing leaders/helpers. There are issues and hurdles that we all face and so the aim of this website is to help provide you with ideas and resources to fit your situation. Please get in touch if you would like to share an idea or ask for specific advice.

Children’s ministry is a journey of discovery which can take unexpected twists and turns. We need to abandon any notion of power and embrace an attitude of service. It is always better when we journey together.
