URC Children

If you are 12 or under and linked to the United Reformed Church in any way, then you are already part of URC Children.

Who is part of URC Children?

You may be the only child in your church or you may be one of many. You may go on a Sunday or you may rarely or never go on a Sunday. You may belong to a bumps and babies group, toddlers or pre-school, Messy Church or Pilots, Scouts or Guides or one of the Brigades. You may go to Sunday school or junior church or something similar. You may go to a weekday club or a holiday club or use our Families on Faith Adventures @ Home magazine with your family at home. Or you may go to a URC school.

Whoever and wherever you are, you are part of URC Children… together.

Playing your part in the URC

You belong to God’s big family and to the smaller family of God that is the United Reformed Church. There are children just like you all over the country – thousands of children – who are part of URC Children too. URC Children wants to help you play your part in the whole church, just like Jesus said you should. URC Children helps children speak up and helps adults listen because God can use you to make a difference in your church and your world. URC Children wants to help make that more possible… together.

Being involved with the URC

URC Children was launched in 2022 and at that time the whole church agreed to try to listen to children more. We will keep working to find different ways to make this happen. Sometimes it will be in your local church where we will help the adults find new ways of listening and involving you. Sometimes it might be with opportunities online or in person to get together with other children in your area or even from a bigger part of the country to have fun together and have a chance to explore what you want to share about God, the church, the resources we make for you, and God’s world. We will try hard to make sure you get to hear about anything that is happening.

Children together

To help you remember that you’re not alone, you’re part of URC Children… together, we have a special ‘children together’ badge which you can download here and use (PNG | 418). We also have ‘children together’ bags and sew on badges which you or your group leaders can buy from your synod or from Church House.

We have also designed a URC Children together (PDF | 121kb) poster for you to download and display.
