We believe churches should welcome and integrate children and their families into the worshipping life of their church. By applying for, and achieving Child Friendly status your church displays to your community that ministry for children and their families is taken seriously.
Journeying together for the growth of God's family through resourcing, supporting and empoering churches.
The Child Friendly Church Award team works towards this vision by:
Providing a self assessment tool to allow churches to reflect on their existing ministry to children and families under three core components of Church, Children & Community.
Encouraging churches to then create or develop their vision for ministry with children and families and think to the future.
Allocating each church a Child Friendly Church Award Advisor who will support then through the process and beyond, providing encouragement and acting as a mentor to help them achieve your goals.
The award is valid for a period of 3 years.
All our advisors have extensive experience in ministry to children and families. Mentoring however is always a two way experience as we journey together through this process and share our experiences with others.
National interest in this Diocese of Liverpool scheme means that the CFCA logo can be seen outside churches of many denominations all around Great Britain, showing that the churches take provision of children and young people seriously. To the right of this page, there are links to different Dioceses - so families can discover where child friendly churches are in the UK.
