We aim to monitor areas of interest and/or concern to those working with children within the Christian community in Scotland and bring this to the attention of the Programme Committee and Member Churches of ACTS and others for consideration and further action. We facilitate at least two conference style events each year that facilitate both learning and discussion on related issues. We are also members of the Churches Together Britain and Ireland (CTBI) network group for those involved in ministry with children this group is known as the Consultative Group on Ministry with Children (CGMC) to ensure the voice of the children in the churches in Scotland is included.

For details of future events please see up-to-date information on the work of the group below or contact ACTS
