Under-fives key to significant church growth 

New research shows that young families with children under five could be a vital element for church growth. 

The Talking Toddlers report, using research by Savanta ComRes*, released on Monday 18 May 2020, shows that 74% of all parents with children under the age of five attended a church-run activity in the previous year.

This new research was commissioned by HOPE Together, the Church of England, and the Evangelical Alliance to highlight the potential for sustained church growth if the church nurtures the faith of under-fives and their parents.

76% of parents of under 5’s have a connection with a local church, often through toddler groups. This means toddler groups and work with young families is a MASSIVE mission opportunity. How do we make the most of this opportunity? How do we make the most of Christmas? Join us as we look at the research, hear personal experiences and share resources and ideas together.
