As we seek to ‘Equip the church to reach a generation’, we believe that children can become, be and make disciples of Jesus, whilst children – that they can challenge, inspire, encourage and speak into the life of the church today.
We are passionate about working amongst churches to help the voice of the child not only be heard, but engaged with, as they share in their role as children of God, part of His family, part of His Church.
Children’s Insight will be a place for children for us to share the thoughts of children on a whole host of issues through videos, polls and questionnaires. It would be great to hear what you think the questions that need to be asked are and if possible for you to ask the children you work amongst some of these questions to; we’d love to hear what they think.

- What would you stop to make church more enjoyable?
So what do you think?
At an event where we had about 100 children from Christian families, we asked them a whole range of questions we wanted them to consider. We wanted to actually get them thinking and inputting into a discussion rather than simply being ‘talked at’. Here are three questions that got some interesting discussions going.…
