In March 2022, the Whānau Friendly process will be launched.
Our dream is that the local church is a place where all generations are present, thriving, encouraging one another and growing in faith together. The Whānau Friendly process has been designed to help your church move closer to this.
The resource is available for churches to run in the new year. In this process your whole congregation will discover together six ministry essentials that can help ministry to children, young people and their families flourish in your parish. Your congregation will also discover that everyone benefits and grows when we are intentional about connecting across the generations.
The resource has been created in partnership with Presbyterian Children and Families Ministry and includes a film series, intergenerational teaching curriculum, community surveys and resources to create actions and priorities for ministry.
