Have you done (or are doing) a Children’s Ministry research project – tell the Children’s Ministry Network

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Children’s Ministry Network (formerly known as the Consultative Group on Ministry amongst Children) I am carrying out an inquiry to locate the direction of thinking in current UK research into matters relating to children’s ministry, this might include subjects like children’s spirituality, intergenerational worship, discipling for life long faith etc. This information will be fed back to the group at their next 24 hour conference in November.

It may be that you are personally engaged in a research project or that your organisation is conducting something relevant that connects with this and you need to forward this request onto a colleague that’s ok. It might be that a study has recently been completed and may or may not be published as yet, that would also be useful to know.

What would be helpful is to have a brief synopsis of the research (no more than one side of A4). All this needs to include is a summary of the project and the background/context for it, its aims and any potential outcomes in response, especially with regards to sharing the findings. Please indicate whether or not you would be willing to follow this up with further information should that be needed.

To help us with our planning, I would be grateful if you could respond to this by Monday 29 August 2016.
