There was a great attendance on the night and a lot of positive feedback submitted via our anonymous feedback forms. Here is just a selection of some of the comments:
“Inspirational in a relaxed setting”
“Interesting and inspiring speakers”
“An open and honest approach to children’s ministry”
The event closed with a chance to browse a selection of stalls and ask questions on different aspects of children's ministry. The stalls included YKids, The Children's Society, WLTDO, Youth for Christ, Christian Aid and Diocesan resources on Awe and Wonder for under 5's and Sunday Schools and children's groups.
