Welcome to the Child Friendly Church Award Page
The Child Friendly Church Award Scheme has been developed by the
Diocese of Liverpool, to help churches give children the best possible
experience of church — and with it a positive, true view of what God is like.
The Child Friendly Church Award Scheme acts as a tool to help you evaluate
the basics of your children's/youth work — the extent to which your church is
a safe, suitable place for children, nurtures them in the Christian faith,
allows them to be fully part of the people of God in that place, and equips
their leaders for this work.
This is a self assessment scheme: although someone will come to work
through the form in more detail. There are 9 sections to the form.
Yes/No/Unsure tick boxes invite the Church Council to respond to the questions.
This allows the church to celebrate what is positive as well as discuss what could be achievable.
The award is intended to celebrate and support the church's journey to being Child Friendly.
