Connecting with children and families in the community

This is a training event run by Thrive for local churches on Saturday 28th April at Whitnash Methodist Church, Murcott Road East, Leamington CV31 2JJ, 10am-12pm.

It’s estimated that a staggering 95% of children in England are not connected with church on a regular basis.

What can we do to take church out on the street?

Just how do we reach out to the 95%?

This training event will look at various ideas to reach out to children and their families.

Have you ever put all your energy into a free family fun day, and not seen any families, or drawn crowds into your church hall, barbecued hundreds of burgers only to find you don’t see the families again?

During this training event we will discover how to be effective in outreach as well as establish and develop longer lasting contacts.

The morning will explore:

  • how we reach out, what activities are especially effective
  • a Biblical understanding of outreach
  • following a process which enables us to meet the needs of the children (and their families) in our communities
  • how to share the Good News of Jesus with them.


Early bird discount tickets are £10 per person, if booked by Saturday 14th April.

Standard ticket price is £15 per person.
