Mission-Shaped ChildrenKathy Bland, via The Good Book Stall
Written as a response to Mission-shaped Church, this is a concise and very readable book. It grapples with some of the challenges presented to those already working with children and also to churches who know that they should be doing so. The book explores how the Church can shape itself around children and young people, rather than expecting them to fit in with the Church and also gives plenty of real life examples of good practice to inspire the reader.
Whilst for people already engaged in children’s work, this book may be telling them little that they didn’t know already; its target audience is really those people who want to be fully including children in their mission but who are NOT already doing so. Undoubtedly the best audience for this book would be members and leaders of churches who are not and who do not want to be including children, though it is unlikely these people will find themselves reading it! Perhaps anyone thinking of reading this book could pass it on to such people after reading it!
For PCCs and any other working groups wanting to use Mission-shaped Church, there are lots of useful discussion questions. It does not give a formula for doing it ‘right’ (though it gives a fairly honest view of how we might be doing it wrong!).
There are plenty of examples throughout the book to inspire even the most pessimistic of churches and to point them towards some positive and exciting possibilities for their future ministry to children.
