Children’s Potential – Clare Whittaker

God sees the potential in every child. He has placed in them unique gifts and qualities that he wants them to use, whatever their age. This workshop explores how we as adults can help children discover their God given potential, and empower them to use these gifts and qualities in their homes, communities and churches right now.

Workshop Leader: Clare Whittaker (Soul Action)

Time: 10.30 – 11.20



Theme:  God’s heart for Children

Where do children stand in God’s eyes? What role have children played in the story of God that
we have missed? What significance does Jesus’ gathering children into his arms to teach his
disciples something about the kingdom?

Workshop Leader: Rev Ben Aldous (Assistant Minister St Martin’s Church)

Time: 11.30 – 12.20
