Growing with God is our annual celebration and training day for everyone involved in mission and ministry with children, families and young people.
This year we will be exploring the richness of what it means to be an intergenerational church and how nurturing deep connections across all ages, brings blessings and benefits to our parishes and communities.
We will be exploring what intergenerational church means for our contexts and sharing stories about ministry in diverse contexts including urban estates and interfaith parishes.
We will be focussing on how the growth of faith and commitment of children and young people can be fuelled by creating natural ways for all generations to live, worship and serve together.
We’re being hosted by St John’s and St Peter’s, Ladywood, and the day will include worship, short ‘TED’ style talks, and plenty of time to meet people from other parishes to share your own stories. We have input from across the Church of England Birmingham, supported by a prayer team, and a reflection space.
The new ‘Resource Hub’ will give opportunities to speak to national and local organisations who resource children’s and youth mission and ministry: they will be bringing resources to look at and things to take away.
There will be time to talk with people about communications, safeguarding, finance, and People and Places and the Parish Mission Support team will be available to have one to one conversations about the way they can support the mission and ministry in your community.
This year, we have introduced a pre-pay system where churches, who are able, can pay for someone from another church to attend. Pre-paid tickets will be kept on a list and allocated when the need arises. If you would like to buy a ticket for another church, please select how many from the dropdown indicated below.
Please bring your own lunch. If needed, there are a few local shops within 5-10 minute walk.
