Children and Young People’s Ministry

Ministry with children and young people in a church setting is served by the ChYP’s Ministry team.

We believe that discipleship is possible at any age; that all ages can worship in intergenerational settings; that the value of our worship is not defined or constrained by how much we know about God but rather by simply knowing God. We believe that it is possible for children & young people to be full members, integral in the life of our churches as long as we are willing to let go of the obstacles that prevent them from engaging with us.

The ChYP’s Ministry team works in four broad areas:
