<strong>Version 7 (287 words: Worshipping with Children in our MIDST focus)</strong>

Phillip Day was a volunteer or a staff member with Scripture Union for over 30 years and currently has a networking/ training/ consultancy role with the Victorian Council of Christian Education (VCCE).  He has been a Children’s &amp; Family pastor in large and small churches and has played a variety of leadership roles in mission &amp; holiday programs, helping children and their families to follow Jesus.  Married to Keren, they have two children Tess (19) and Georgia (17).  Phillip enjoys exploring new ways to incorporate the visual and performing arts in communicating God’s Good News as part of corporate worship and other learning experiences.

Four of his top ideas when it comes to worshipping with children include:

1. Gather children to your laps for cuddles &amp; participation for the BIG 4 Worship activities …music/singing/dancing … Bible readings … prayer … communion.  Provide quiet, supportive resources for your child around these activities.

2. Creche &amp; Foyer: Use For Recovery Only!  … make sure all the quiet, interesting, yummy, fun, colourful things are in the worship area with the family of God.

3. The ‘Mosh Pit’ of Worship … make sure your families with children sit with a clear view of the action.  This will surround children with the culture you would love them to absorb in order for them to learn and grow into worship.

4. Don’t do it for parents! … encourage parents in their responsibilities of parenting and help them with the ideas, teaching and resources they need to be great parents and the spiritual leaders they can be for their own children.  Train parents in a diverse range of topics from discipline in the home to understanding the faith journey of children; from active listening to their children to helping their children to respond to God.

Phillip would be more than happy to discuss these concepts with you.

<strong>Quotes about Phil</strong>
<blockquote>[blockQuote position=”center”]Creative, inspiring, diverse, lateral, inclusive and interactive.  He is able to articulate in words what we have felt and know for years but have been struggling to express and put into action.[/blockQuote] [blockQuote position=”center”]Phil’s understanding of children in the community of faith is something he has obviously given a great deal of time and research to.  We’ve learnt how valuable it is to learn/worship/grow WITH children.  In terms of looking at the church, we have reversed the culture away from individual and ‘nuclear’ family towards being a faith community!  People look at us and say “We want that!”[/blockQuote]</blockquote>

 

 

[expand title=”5Keys Cafe: Introduction” rel=”5keyscafeintro” tag=h3] [expandsub2 title=”Organisation” rel=”intro-highlander” tag=h4] The following points outline the minimum setup in a cafe-style discussion of the topics. A welcoming and inviting space is important. If a small group gathers at a coffee shop then adapt the following to that context.

[ul style=”5″] [li]Gather participants in groups at tables.[/li] [li]Preliminaries: Each person needs: Explanations sheet with picture codes for which group to join.[/li] [li]Each table needs: Table & chairs; Paper & pens; Light refreshments (e.g. paper wrapped lollies); Table notice including title and code.[/li] [li]Roles are delegated for each round as follows: Facilitator (if not pre-appointed); Time keeper; Scribe; Encourager; Decorator; A prayer writer[/li] [/ul][spacer height=”10″ mobile_hide=”true”][/expandsub2] [expandsub2 title=”Introduction & explanation” rel=”intro-highlander” tag=h4] For larger groups, it is worth introducing this cafe-style approach with the following points.
[ul style=”5″] [li]A brief introduction to 5 Keys for ministry with children and families may be achieved with either a handout or a powerpoint/keynote presentation. [/li] [li]It is important to note that there is some overlap between the keys e.g. connecting as one participates is an overlap. Each group can make a call as to which one it bests suits, probably ‘connect’ in this example.[/li] [li]Just program, pure curriculum or education on its own is not producing faith-filled disciples. Just ‘family’ on its own is struggling. An across the board household and faith community approach is needed, particularly in 5 key areas.[/li] [li]The topic explored here is one such key and has many applications to a wide variety of contexts.[/li] [li]Different contexts may include: households, classrooms, small groups, camps, one to one mentoring, cafe conversations, holiday programs, Sunday morning programs for children, celebrations of worship, family or bedtime prayer times, conversation in the car, meal times and more.[/li] [li]Participants are free to speak generally or specifically into their context. Time will not permit much sharing of the specific detail of any one context. Save that for the breaks.[/li] [li]Each question provides different ways to ask the same question. Not all need to be used at once.[/li] [/ul][spacer height=”10″ mobile_hide=”true”] [/expandsub2] [/expand] [spacer height=”20″ mobile_hide=”true”]
