Listening to Children in the church

24 January 2018 One Comment

Do you know what the children of the church think? Have you asked or do you make assumptions? There are some great resources put out by the Church of England and partners under the project ‘Learn to Listen’ which can help us biblically ground and practically implement better listening both about a particular question or issue in your church, and just in everyday interactions with children.

Check out the ‘Learn to Listen’ resources HERE or www.learn-to-listen.org.uk

There are also some further resources from the Diocese of Liverpool HERE.

UNITING NSW ACT has also been working on how they listen to children and families who participate in UNITING services and it will be great to extend some of these resources over to congregations this year. Watch this space!

If you are interested in models of participation more broadly – check out Models of Participation which includes many theorists across children, youth and adult participation.
