YFM Support & Guidance for Children & Youth Ministry (CYM)

Text block 4

The YFM team offer a range of support and guidance to Ministry Areas (MAs). This includes our 'Partner with us' form and our 5 types of resources:Partner with us – An opportunity for the YFM team to identify current practice and future needs, designed for Ministry Area's to fill out. Once completed a member of the YFM who acts as your point of contact will be in touch to explore in further detail how the team can support CYM within your MA.Party – This resource provides how-to guides and YFM reports of events run by MA's that can help support others with their own events. It will also be used as an opportunity to advertise up and coming events taking place across the Diocese that support CYM.Play – Our play resource details activities that can be used as session plans for kids church, school engagement and exploring different aspects of our faith such as prayer. We utilise how-to guides and reports and signpost external organisations. The important thing to remember here is the activities in this resource have a definitive start and end point.Preparation – Our hope is to identify and provide training from the YFM team, other MA's and the Diocese's partners to support professional development within CYM. This could be from safeguarding to how to disciple a youth group.Programmes – Unlike play, programmes have the goal of once being setup they continue indefinately, things including: Kids Church, Youth Groups and family services. Again, how-to guides and reports will be produced to help the implementation of programmes in MA's.Provision – This is a catalogue of physical resources that can be borrowed from the Diocese.
