Engaging younger generations

To fulfil our call to proclaim afresh the Good News in each generation, we need to connect far more effectively with those aged 40 and under. We particularly need to develop skills and confidence as we find new ways to engage and make disciples of younger generations helping us to pass on the baton of faith and see lives transformed.

We will prioritise reconnecting with children and teenagers, young adults and families as we explore, discover and establish fresh approaches to making these connections.

Our church schools will provide an education for young people that is excellent and authentically Christian, and through which we can serve and connect with younger generations in our communities.

We will do everything we can to ensure that each of our churches are safe and welcoming for all and to enhance best practice in safeguarding.


"When our relationships with God, each other and our communities grow stronger, we will see God’s Kingdom come. Will you commit to make disciples, grow leaders and engage younger generations?”

Archdeacon Christine Froude
