Inspired by the Church of England’s recent report, Rooted in the Church and after working alongside parishes over the past couple of years, the Diocesan Missioners for Youth and Children’s Ministry have been moving towards developing intergenerational ways of being church.
So the Gen2 Team has been formed to encourage parishes in mission and ministry with children and young people, with an intergenerational thread running through its heart. Pete White, Chad Chadwick and Becky Wills are available to advise, train, resource and equip churches to fully include children and young people and to become intergenerational in all aspects of church life, so that ‘one generation shall praise God’s works to one another’ (Psalm 145:4).
We believe that growth happens when all generations are engaged in being disciples of Jesus together. Rooted in the Church found that where children and young people are included in leadership and worship, not judged, treated as equals and unconditionally welcomed they will stay and be at the heart of their local church family. This is already being demonstrated in parishes across the Diocese.
