We're better together

Learn how to create space for children and young people to authentically belong in our faith communities, ensuring they are wrapped up in a welcoming, loving and accepting church whānau. Diana Langdon shows how to provide opportunities for all generations to worship, serve and seek God together. In a journey of discovery and mythbusting, unpack the concept of intergenerational ministry and what it means for the Church today.

Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.
