Children and Family Ministry

We envision an Anglican community that nurtures the spiritual growth of children and fully includes children as partners in the faith community with dignity, worth and gifts to share.  As we support and resource parish-based programs, we advocate for and model a broader vision of church which is inclusive of all kinds of people, including children with varying abilities, backgrounds, families, faith experiences, places in the spiritual journey, and church affiliations (in/out/on the edge).
