Support for Children's Workers


The Diocese of Ely is passionate about promoting, and developing good work with children and their families.

We believe that this ministry is of paramount importance to the Church 's mission. In Matthew 18:3 Jesus challenges adults to become like little children in order to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Children are spiritual beings with their own thoughts and feelings about God. Our role is to nurture and encourage them to grow to a full and mature faith in Christ and to help them find their place to serve in the church community. 

The new Children's Strategy, which details how we are working to achieve this, can be downloaded here.

Children's Adviser Role

The Diocesan Children's Adviser role is to create vision, resource, equip, train and encourage those working with children in the diocese. Different approaches will be needed in different settings and Debbie Hill is keen to support churches in discerning the best way forward to develop their work with children and families.

She is available to offer advice, training and resources for churches working with children aged 0-11 and liaises with the Diocesan Development Officer Baptism and Under 5s, Revd Olivia Coles and also the Diocesan Development Officer: Young People
