In a newly published video, the team at St Peter’s Church in Morley share how their work with children and young people has experienced an encouraging journey of growth.
Through intentionally making next generation ministry a priority in the parish and ensuring it is resourced appropriately, St Peter’s has seen an increase in the number of children and families attending and exploring faith.
The Revd Phil Harris, who joined St Peter’s as the vicar in 2020, said, “Over the last two years we’ve seen God do some amazing things in growing our ministry to children and young people.”
“For the first few months I lead the kid’s ministry during the service. What that said was that the children are a priority, they matter just as much if not more sometimes than us as grownups.
“As we set out on this journey we made a decision to invest in children and help them to grow in faith.”
