Children's and Young People's Work Support Team
Judith Sadler, based at Church House, supports churches in the three Newcastle deaneries, Bedlington and Tynemouth; the Revd James Harvey has a part-time responsibility to parishes in the north; the Revd Rachel Scheffer has part-time responsibility to parishes in the west.
The team has developed 'Growth and Fruitfulness' a strategy to support churches in their desire to 'become the good news' in their communities. ('Going for Growth - Transformation for children, young people and the Church', para 1.9).
Becoming the good news takes many different shapes and forms, depending upon the context and circumstances of each church community. To do this the team needs to learn from, respond to and build upon existing work, questions, challenges and creative ideas with which churches are currently engaging.
