We can offer a quick 5 minute conversation about something small and simple, or advice about the more complex and difficult areas of ministry. From working with parents or difficult children to handling PCCs, we are able to offer a listening ear and, if you would like us to, offer advice.

If you are thinking about developing the work your church does with children and young people, we can help guide you through a process of reflection and preparation to ensure that best use is made of  resources and opportunities. From helping you to employ workers safely and legally to understanding issues about encouraging a volunteering culture within church we are here to help you and serve you however we can.

We are loosely divided into 2 sections:
Children & Families Ministry  (0-11yrs)
Youth Ministry  (12-25 yrs)

We are based at ​Church House Guildford on Surrey Research Park. You are welcome to come and pay us a visit anytime, but it might be wise to ring first. ​Church House Guildford also houses the Resource Centre and the Diocesan Church Schools Support Team.

A step by step guide to constructing a church development plan as part of Transforming Church, Transforming Lives.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31
