  • The Church of England website has lots of suggestions, including the Lent course, daily prayer, and other live streaming services and prayer resources.

Children and young people

Every family is unique and the key is to find what your unique family needs. We are sharing some ideas of how you can seek God in your childrenfamily. There is no need to do all of them, but see which ones will help your family connect with God and give them a go. Feel free to adapt them, to add to them or for them to spark ideas of different ways your family can grow with God.

The Archbishops in their letter to us says this:

"Being a part of the Church of England is going to look very different in the days ahead.

Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and service we offer each day.

We may not be able to pray with people in the ways that we are used to, but we can certainly pray for people. And we can certainly offer practical care and support."
