National prayer month for toddler groups – June 2016
Many of Mothers’ Union Members are involved in supporting Parent and Toddler groups. One of the most beneficial supports for parents of young children is for them to get together with others who are going through similar experiences. Some of their best and life long friends are made at local Toddler groups, children made friends there and so find moving on to the next stage easier and parents get to know Christians from the local community.
The National Month of Prayer for toddler group ministries will take place in June 2016. The aim is to encourage people to pray and to get their churches praying! ‘Living life to the full’ is the theme this year and John 10 v10 is the keynote scripture ‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’
With over 20,000 churches estimated to be running toddler groups in the UK, we believe that it is so important for groups, the leaders, the children and their families to be supported in prayer.
Visiting the 1277 website http://www.1277.org.uk will inform you about the group and registering your Parent and Toddler group will help to increase the number of church toddler groups that are known about. It is also a good place to find out about resources and events as well as making the most of Toddler groups.
