multiple-babiesThe ABS reports that with just over 300,000 births for the year ending 30 June 2009, “Australia’s total fertility rate reached a 30 year high with just under 2 babies per woman, the highest since 1977”. The population growth rate is also at its highest level since 1969.

What might this mean for children’s ministry at your church? How can you reach out to families with babies and young children living near you?
