Children are often more open to the things of God than adults – they accept God’s power more freely and expect him to act. We have a passion to see God move through the lives of children and their families and want to encourage and equip children’s workers to enable this.
We aim to support, inspire and train children’s workers through networking opportunities and events. At our United events we model children’s ministry that offers kids of all ages the opportunity to grow in faith within a nurturing and exciting environment.
At our United summer gathering our 0-11s receive top-quality worship, teaching and ministry – and huge amounts of fun – through dedicated, age-appropriate groups led by some of the best kids’ work practitioners on the planet! In addition to our kids’ groups, we have an under 5s family venue, other fun family activities as well as a stream of seminars for parents/carers on family life. To find out more click here.
KIDS LEADERS’ SUMMIT:
We’re currently reshaping our Kids Leaders’ Summit and we’ll be able to announce more soon. The aim is to hold the Summit within the National Leadership Conference at Harrogate in 2022. There will be space to be refreshed, renewed, challenged, and inspired and receive teaching and ministry.
Like our New Wine Leadership Network, we are currently establishing a Kids Leaders’ Network led by experienced kids’ leaders’ practitioners to connect kids’ leaders within a region for times of training, networking, inspiration and equipping. Through our regional hubs we aim to run kids’ leaders’ training days that will equip, excite and inspire kids’ workers and volunteers who are discipling our next generation in our local churches. More info coming soon!
New Wine Online
Alongside our regional connection we also have training available on New Wine Online. Currently online is our Strong Foundations course consisting of 12 weekly sessions and featuring familiar faces Rick Otto, Jude Barber, Rachel Turner & others. Topics include developing a volunteer team, Holy Spirit ministry, kids’ worship, session planning and much more!
We will continue to add to the resource of New Wine Online. To sign up or find out more, click here.
We’re excited to be partnering with Raise UP Faith which is a brand-new multimedia content & curriculum platform.
