Children, Youth and Families
Our Children and Families Development Officer, Sophie works strategically across the Deanery Island churches to promote, encourage, resource and facilitate the work we do with children and families. Whether you are looking for a church community to call home or a group to join in with and explore the Christian faith, the church has much to offer. We have a variety of groups and activities within the Parish churches, from Sunday morning ministry suitable for adults and children, Baby and Toddler Groups, Dad’s Groups, Forest Church to Church with Pizza!

Our Deanery Children and Families Worker is an advocate for the voice of the child, young person and parent within the Island Churches. This can be done through running workshops, research projects, developing relationships with families, and simply listening to those who attend Island churches. We want to listen, support and act and this role enables that to happen.
