Church of England

Going for Growth calls the Church to work towards every child and young person having a life-enhancing encounter with the Christian faith and the person of Jesus Christ. But what is the Christian faith all about? 

  • Faith is the gift of God to his people
  • Today we are trusting God for their growth in faith.
  • In baptism , these children/young people begin their journey in faith.

 These phrases from the baptism service remind us that faith is not static - it grows and develops. Family, friends and the church community all have a part to play in helping a child or young person grow in faith by:

  • example - living out our own faith
  • walking alongside - listening and learning with children and young people
  • caring - helping them take their place in worship

This section of Going for Growth offers links and resources to help:

  • explore the Christian faith with children and young people
  • understand and nurture spirituality
  • support discipleship
  • engage in worship
  • explore what it means to be an Anglican!
