Together, we've developed 'Growth and Fruitfulness' - a strategy to support churches in their desire to 'become the good news' in their communities. ('Going for Growth - Transformation for children, young people and the Church', para 1.9).
Becoming the good news takes many different shapes and forms, depending upon the context and circumstances of each church community. To do this the team needs to learn from, respond to and build upon existing work, questions, challenges and creative ideas with which churches are currently engaging.
We asked some of our young people about their experience of church. Find out what they had to say in our Young People Speaking publication.
