What Have the Children Done for Us?

Thursday, April 20, 2017
11:30am-12:30pm PDT / 12:30-1:30pm MDT / 1:30-2:30pm CDT / 2:30-3:30pm EDT / 7:30-8:30pm BST

Sara Barron

So often we look at children as those we need to teach. What if we saw that building relationship was mutually beneficial? How would that affect church, life, and community? Can we grow intergenerational communities that enable all to flourish? Jesus said ‘the kingdom belongs to such as these.’ In what ways can we hold space for children in and out of the church to build friendship, community and relationship with God?

Sara Barron is a Baptist minister currently working as an Anglican pioneer in an area of deprivation. She is also the development worker for CURBS, which resources, trains and supports children’s workers in urban and housing development areas.
