Children &
Family Ministries

Seeing churches flourish as intergenerational communities of faith.

We serve, connect, support and equip those who minister with children and families in the CCCNZ movement. We want to see churches thrive and grow and be places where children encounter God and are welcomed as valued members of intergenerational faith communities.


We believe that all ministry has as its core the desire to grow lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.


We believe that ministry to children and young people includes resourcing and supporting the entire family.

Leadership Development

We believe that all children and young people have the capacity to provide leadership and need encouragement and opportunities to do so.


We believe that ministry to children and young people needs to have an outward component, serving the community and reaching people with the good news of Jesus.


We believe that children and young people are an integral part of the wider church where they are known, valued and involved.
