Where Are the Children?

Margaret Withers

$17.99

Paperback
Most youngsters who come to church are the children of the adult congregation and, depressingly, nearly half of our churches claim that they have no children at all. If we look beyond Sunday morning, however, we see a more optimistic picture. There are children attending parent and toddler clubs, midweek activities and Church schools, or who come to special festival services. There are children at school carol services, or guests at baptisms, weddings or funerals, or who use the church hall for sports or drama, belong to uniformed organisations or visit a church as part of an RE lesson. This book is about enabling those children to hear the Christian story. It aims to provide throught-provoking guidance to explore the wealth of opportunities for evangelism among children, and a training base for clergy and children's workers.

- Publisher Reviews the ways we can engage with young people and the obstacles that we, unwittingly, put in the way Examines strategic planning and ways of managing change Engages with the culture of today's children and explores the rationale for evangelism among children Identifies and encourages action that is possible for most local churches Provides advice on running specific clubs or activities
