Passing on the faith to the next generations is an exciting and challenging journey, a journey that can at times be exasperating, and a journey during which we all need a little help sometimes. Learn: Children and Young People, draws on the experiences and wisdom of many practitioners to offer you encouragement, inspiration and thinking that will help you on that journey.
This collection of articles explores how we can be church together, work together and be formed together. The range of articles provides a starting point for further thought, each offering questions to think about or for discussion, ideas for further reading, actions to try and resources to use.
