Summer 2019 Take a breath

Here at the Gen2 Team we hope you’re having a great Summer, whether you’re relaxing by a beach or in the middle of an active Summer of Children’s or Youth Ministry.
We love to hear your stories of Summer activities with children or young people so please share with us what you’ve been up to so that we can encourage each other.

New academic year. New opportunities. New faces.

At the start of the new Autumn term, we’re working in partnership with our Children’s & Youth Champions, other local Charities and organisations to host several Children and Youth Ministry ‘gatherings’ all over our Diocese. For more info contact Chad (North/East) or Becky (South/West).

Come a join us! A great opportunity to…

  • Press reset and get ready for the academic year
  • Meet and welcome those that are new
  • Share stories of what God is doing in our Churches and communities
  • Connect and pray together
