From their first moments of life, children are learning about and responding to the world. But what are they learning about and responding to spiritually?
This section of the Going for Growth website offers ideas and resources for families and churches to nurture the spiritual life and faith of children in their early years.
This section of the site has particular areas of interest including:
- Ideas and resources for church based toddler groups
- Thoughts on introducing Bible stories to toddlers
- Practical articles to help new parents think about how to nurture Christian faith in their young children
- Research by 9Dot Research for the Church of England with the Church in Wales, exploring the range of church-based toddler groups and practical ways they might be encouraged to become more confident in their Christian distinctiveness. You can download the research here.
We hope you find videos, articles and resources on our website that inspire you and your community to share Jesus – and please do feel free to share these on social media or in church gatherings. If you see something that you would like to post on another website, however, please get in touch so that we can help you.
