Greetings from Julia
It is such a privilege to work with children, and I am looking forward to getting to know you and what God is doing in your parishes, as you seek to engage with children and to nurture their faith and relationship with God.
Our Diocese encompasses a wide variety of communities and within each one there are many children who are yet to discover God’s love for themselves. Reaching children and their families is a ‘risky’ business, it challenges our preferences and traditions yet the rewards of sharing the Christian faith with them are ‘life changing’.
We need to encourage and build one another up in our work with children, and to take every opportunity to ensure that we are as well trained and resourced as we can be. My prayer is that God’s passion for every child will encourage and sustain our call to mission, and take us forward together in imaginative and practical ways to grow faith among the children and families in our communities.
