Product description

Synopsis

The saying 'Children are our future...' may be a cliche but it is one that the Church cannot afford to ignore! Too often, nurture and worship for children is about containing and entertaining, rather than engaging with and growing young Christians who can give as much as they receive. "Mission-shaped Church" touched on the importance of involving and nurturing the children and young people in the Church, but only in passing. "Mission-shaped Children" fills this gap. Written as a response to "Mission-shaped Church" from the perspective of children, this important book explores: how the dramatic cultural, social and economic trends of recent years have impacted on children's lives and how this affects the Church; developments in how the Church has nurtured children in the past 100 years; the many and varied opportunities there are to help children to experience Church and some of the challenges this presents for those working with children; and how the Church can shape itself around children and young people, rather than expecting them to fit in with the Church.

Written in an engaging style, "Mission-shaped Children" contains many real life case studies, practical examples and questions for discussion.
