Kids Friendly is our churches children's ministry office that aims to equip churches to intentionally minister to children and families in their communities.
Being "Kids Friendly" is an ethos and value that is expressed and embraced by the whole congregation.
Our Kids Friendly Coaches offer training, coaching, advice, resources and encouragement to churches wanting to minister to children and families.
We encourage all Presbyterian and Uniting churches committed to ministering to children and families to join our Kids Friendly Network. Network members receive:
A Heart for Children
Kids Friendly Sundays
Valued Children’s Ministry Leaders
A Safe and Healthy Environment
A Commitment to Self Review
A Kids Friendly Minister
Kids Friendly network members can opt to work to become a Kids Friendly Church. This involves:
"We needed help with structuring our Kids Church and exploring ways we could more effectively welcome children and share our faith with them. We also needed some guidance on how to effectively and safely recruit volunteer leaders and helpers. Having a two hour coaching meeting with Jill helped us immensely. We went into the meeting feeling very discouraged, frustrated and weighed down; and left the meeting feeling excited, encouraged, and with restored passion. Jill gave us practical tools and ideas for how to structure the leadership and how to create an environment where children feel welcome."
