Your service of celebration can make a big difference for vulnerable children.

a church on a sunny day

We know that the Church plays a vital role in helping vulnerable children and young people across the country. 

Perhaps there are children’s workers or ambassadors for our charity in your congregation. A service of celebration is a perfect way to say thank you to these special people while raising awareness of the issues many vulnerable children face today. 

We’ve designed some special resources that you can use during your service to celebrate how many children have been helped thanks to your support and our work. Why not make it an all-age service to engage every member of the congregation?  

What service resources are on offer?

We have lots of great downloadable church service resources for you to use:

You can also preorder other resources such as posters, invitations and collection boxes from our resources page.

Whether you choose to use our resources or not, we’d love you to hold a collection at your church so that together, we can help many more children who’ve run away from home. 

Perhaps you could ask the children in your congregation to get involved and see how much they can collect during the summer holidays in their own collection box? 

You can contact our Supporter Care team on 0300 303 7000 if you have any questions about your celebration service. 

On your lawn

If your service schedule is already full, perhaps you’d rather have an excuse to spend time relaxing together this summer. Then why not hold a Summer Celebration picnic? It's really easy to do and an amazing way to support vulnerable children this summer. 

In your prayers

If your social calendar is getting full but you’d still like to help support vulnerable children, then why not sign up to pray for vulnerable young people. The Children’s Society greatly values the support of Christian partners like you who commit to praying for our work.
