The vision of the Children’s Ministry Network is to “serve churches in their ministry with children.” Children’s Ministry Network is made up of representatives from each diocese in Ireland, representatives from the Sunday School Society for Ireland, members of the board of Education a representative from CIYD, a member of the House of Bishops and other co-opted members for consultation and training. Bishop Alan Abernethy is the network’s chairperson. The network works in collaboration with the Sunday School Society for Ireland and Lydia Monds who works part time with the Sunday School Society leads the network.
Children’s Ministry Network provides helpful advice and training, to volunteers working with children in their local church. Their website (found at http://cm.ireland.anglican.org/ ) provides leaders with free resources to download, tips and recommendations. The Network also provides newsletters periodically with information relevant to the season ahead to help leaders plan and prepare for their children’s groups and for special events.
