Children's Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word takes place when children are led from the Sunday assembly during the Liturgy of the Word and celebrate separately a Liturgy of the Word more appropriate to their level of understanding. This offers children an opportunity to see, hear, say and do worship at their own level, including eye level.  The appropriate use of symbols, gestures, movement and music suitable for a child’s understanding can heighten the experience of the transcendent and mirrors what is happening in the main assembly. Recruit and form a team of leaders and offer this engaging worship for young children in your parish!  We are here to help!

fun days with god

Fun Days with God is a kit of ideas and activities for organising and running fun days with God for children in a parish or school, which includes prayer, drama, and activities to help children explore Gospel stories.

There are a total of 12 days run as whole or part days, based around Years A, B and C of the Church’s Liturgical seasons:

  • Advent Adventures (Advent and Christmas Day)
  • Easter Capers (Lent to Easter Sunday)
  • Alive in the Spirit (Easter to Pentecost)
  • Thank You God for Spring (Ordinary Time)

Contact us to talk about how you can use Fun Days with God in your context.

PRIMARY AGED
YOUTH GROUPS

Young people today are making a personal decision about faith and their relationship with God as early as 10 years old with the median age being 13.

Primary aged youth groups are an opportunity for these young people to be invited into an encounter with Jesus Christ and to provide a place for them to belong within their Catholic Community. They also provide a significant opportunity for Catholic schools and parishes to collaborate in building strong and growing ministries to these young people.

Contact us to explore this opportunity for ministry in your local context.

playgroup

Playgroups are an informal and relaxed opportunity for parents or caregivers and their children (not yet primary school aged) to connect in a parish setting. Volunteers from the parish support the parents/caregivers as they meet other local families and develop friendships in a safe environment.  

A parish-based playgroup is about building relationships and creating a community around your church.

Contact us for more information about how a playgroup could enhance the Children and Families ministry of your parish.
