Ministry among Children helps churches in Chester Diocese to include, nurture and reach out to children aged 0-11.


Providing picture books for our family in Aru

There is a special relationship between churches in Chester Diocese and those in Aru and Boga in DR Congo. As part of this family link, children’s leaders in Aru have asked for help with printing the picture books they need to tell Bible stories week by week through the year. We are inviting children and their leaders in Chester Diocese to join in meeting this need. You can keep admin costs down by sending a cheque or online payment direct to Congo Church Association saying this is a gift for the Aru Boga Chester Link Ecodim picture resources. Gifts from adult tax payers can be gift-aided. Please also email to say how much you have sent, so we can keep track of how much we still have


We provide:

  • training for children’s leaders and anyone concerned with children in the church – in a range of formats from a year-long course to DIY training ideas
  • consultancy for parishes reviewing and developing ministry with children and help with specific issues such as children and Holy Communion, evangelism with children or all-age worship
  • support for employed children’s workers and advice for parishes wanting to employ a worker
  • opportunities to network or be put in touch with churches using different patterns of children's ministry
  • a resource library for churches in the diocese.

 The events page will lead you to details of all future training sessions and children’s events.

Growing Children

Growing Children is a resource for Chester Diocese, providing tools to help churches develop their ministry among children. It enables the whole congregation to look at central issues about children and Christian faith. It also provides tools for reviewing children’s ministry and planning how to reach, nurture and include children. The printed version has been sent to parishes and is also available for download from the Growing Children page.
