Every Child Conference 2019
Exploring SEND in your children’s ministry
Swords Baptist, Dublin / 11th May
Emmanuel Church, Lurgan / 8th June
Jesus said in Matthew 19: “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” The command is clear — we are to put nothing in the way of children coming to Jesus. In a world where no two children are the same, we need to do our best to make sure our ministry to the children in our care is thoughtful and adaptable.
For many of us, we struggle to know how to best interact with and teach children who have Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND). The words of Jesus don’t exclude these children — we need to be sure that we aren’t hindering them from coming to Him. We have a God who saves children despite our mistakes and inabilities, but that shouldn’t keep us from the pursuit of learning how to best minister to children with SEND.
Why not join us on either Saturday 11th May (in Dublin) or Saturday 8th June (in Lurgan) as we explore the world of SEND and think about how we can effectively and lovingly reach every child with the Gospel? We have four very experienced speakers coming to share with us, and a number of other great organisations will be on hand to help resource you in your ministry. Our vision in CEF is to have every child in every county in God’s Word every day. Our heart for this conference, along with everyone else taking part is that Every Child really means, Every Child.
