Growing with God – Reaching Wider, Reaching Further
Reaching Wider, Reaching Further is the theme for this year’s Growing with God. What does it mean to reach wider than our immediate community?
How can we reach further towards God? How can we reach and keep more children and families?
There will be 2 main sessions together where Rachel Turner will be sharing with us and Engage Worship will lead us in worship. There are also 3 seminar choices covering a broad range of topics including creative ideas, schools, families, children in churches and personal development. We will also have a stream run by Home for Good helping us to think about reaching wider to vulnerable children.
In addition to a packed programme, there will be a bookshop, Consultant Corner and Pamper Sessions to be won throughout the day! There will also be lunch provided as well as homemade cakes for you to enjoy.
Tickets are £25 per person, which includes the cost of refreshments and lunch. We love the idea of churches bringing a group of children’s workers to the conference, so when you buy 4 tickets in one go, we’ll give you 1 for free!

If you have children under 2 years of age and are unable to find childcare for the day you are welcome to bring them with you. There will be a small area provided for feeding, changing and play. Please contact email@example.com if you wish to bring your children.
