Who are the people in your neighbourhood?
by Elizabeth Achimah
At Synod 2013, Archbishop Colin Johnson proclaimed his hope for the diocese: that every church would become missional. With declining numbers in the church, we must reach out to the families in the neighbourhood around us. Elizabeth will offer practical suggestions and strategies for connecting with and engaging families in the neighbourhood who have little or no faith affiliation.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: Teach, Grow, Bear Fruit, Disciple
by Yau-Man Siew
The numerous demands of running an efficient children’s ministry and Sunday school can often overwhelm us, and we can forget why Christian education (CE) is critical to the vitality and mission of the church. We will review important sections of scripture, to build a biblical theology of CE, with focused implications for children’s ministry.

Creative Spirituality for Children (and you)

There will be an introductory presentation on creativity and spirituality and lots of practical ideas and examples.
