There are many different ways that you can connect with new families, children and young people, depending on your context and resources.

There are so many resources and ideas to help you connect with all ages across your community, it's easy to be overwhelmed or not know where to start. The following points can be used by the church community or PCC to help you think about what you want to achieve and how it will fit with the existing life of the church.

  • Where does the church family already have connection with children and families and where are the gaps? See the 'Opportunities sheet' in our resources folder to help you do this
  • What do you already do well?
  • What do members of the congregation have skills and enthusiasm for?
  • What are the particular needs of your community and how might you be able to meet them?
  • Who else can you work with? Existing community groups, other churches, charities, institutions
  • How will any plans or ideas fit in with your overall vision as a church? Use the 'In 3 Years Time' sheet in our resources folder to help you
