Diocese supports new Childrenswork magazine

A magazine aimed at people who work with children in churches across the UK was launched today by Premier Christian Media, with the support of the Diocese of London.

Childrenswork magazine and its website seeks to remedy the lack of resources available to Christian children’s leaders across the UK. This unique title is designed to inspire and encourage them to share the message of Jesus with pre-teens.

Co-editor Sam Donoghue, who is Children’s Ministry Adviser to the Diocese of London, explained: "Childrenswork magazine is an exciting development for those of us who work with children. So many work so very hard to help our churches become welcoming places for children and we hope to resource and support them – perhaps raising their horizons as they seek to nurture the incredibly deep, profound, yet fragile faith and spirituality of children."

The bi-monthly is also co-edited by Martin Saunders who said:

"A comparable study in America revealed that nearly half of those who accepted Jesus Christ as their saviour do so before reaching the age of 13 (43%). We have a severe lack of materials available for people working with young children here in the UK."

The new magazine seeks to be vital tool for those working with 0-11 year olds and will feature the latest news on developments in children’s ministry and culture, together with interviews with some of the leading voices in children’s ministry.

Advice panels made up of leading experts in the field will directly address the issues faced by children’s workers, keeping them informed with reviews of the latest ‘How-To’ guides.

Childrenswork magazine is offering a free copy by request: log on to www.childrenswork.co.uk.
