Children’s and Young People’s Ministry: St Peter’s Church Crabbs Cross
The children’s and Young People’s ministry exists to help those in our care know God and grow to become like His Son, Jesus Christ.
To accomplish our purpose we seek…
1. To instil in children’s minds the Word of God, so they will grow to think the way God thinks and live the way God has commanded.
2. To establish in children habits of godly living and a routine of daily prayer.
3. To create a Christian Community of children and adults who enjoy life together as a family and who are committed to Jesus Christ and to each other.
4. To help children follow a sacramental life.
5. To help children trust Christ as Saviour, and to live as Christian’s at home, at school, at play or wherever they are.
6. To make each child’s experience at church safe, fun and profitable in the process of growing to become everything God has planned.
A major high for the young people aged 11 and up is the annual Youth Pilgrimage to Walsingham. In late July/August our 11+ attend the Youth Pilgrimage, under canvas, Monday to Friday, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. Music is provided by the brilliant CJM, worship is in a circus big top, there are games, barbecue, disco, plus bible studies, daily mass along a theme-this year: “More than Silver or Gold-Running for Righteousness”-free time, visits to the seaside on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. This event is an inspiration for all young Christians and a special boost to those in the catholic tradition of the Church of England. The group, with plenty of adult helpers, travels to Norfolk by mini-bus (the drivers have all obtained the mini-bus drivers certification) and stay under canvas. The worship is relevant and exciting and they feel wonderful to be part of such a huge group of youngsters who share their faith., from Monday 1st to Friday 5th August 2022. This years theme is Homeward Bound and will be a week of lively worship, teaching, fellowship and fun.
