Parents´ and Children´s Conference 2018
This year in Poland we will continue to have a Parents’ and Children’s Conference running alongside the European Young Peoples’ Conference.This conference is open for any families from Europe or other saints with a burden for the next generation. Please come expecting to fully enter into the enjoyment of the mutual fellowship and service as this is a time borne and cared for by all the parents and burdened saints serving and coordinating together.
Please note the following important details:
- The Parents’ Conference messages will only take place in the mornings (on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday).
- Translation for the Parents’ Conference will be provided.
- During the morning messages the children from 4 to 12 years old will be cared for by the parents with a small group of serving ones overseeing the service.
- All parents will help to take care of one allocated children’s service time.
- After you have registered you will be contacted to let you know on which of the four mornings you will be serving.
- It is very important that every country makes sure that there is always someone with the children who can translate from English into your language.
- This year there will be three age groups:
- The young children from 0-3 will be cared for by their own parents in a facility alongside the adult meetings with an audio connection to the fellowship.
- The middle group of children from 4 to approximately 9 will be together.
- The older children from approximately 10 to 12 will be together.
- The exact ages of the three groups will be decided when registration is complete depending on the numbers of each age.
- If there are a small number of children coming from a country spanning the middle and older age groups then they can stay together in the group which the parents feel most appropriate.However, in general the children will be encouraged to be with their own age group.
- There is a burden this year to develop the time with those aged 10-12 years old
- The young people’s conference is for young people aged 13-19 with some more mature 12-year olds being allowed to participate. In recent years, there has been a tendency for younger ones from 11-12 to join the YP conference because they feel too old to be with the children. Many of these younger ones, however, are too young to join the young people’s meetings.
- We would therefore like to have a solid time specifically for them in the mornings to lay a foundation for them regarding God’s creation of man, the fall of man and God’s promise to save. We hope this will open a way for the parents and burdened saints in their own localities to bring these ones to salvation.
- We will also have some enjoyable activities together in the morning and will look to see how much we can join them to the young people’s activities in the afternoon.
- In the evenings they will have the option to join the junior tent of the young people’s conference but only if accompanied at all times by their parents who will be able to discern if they are able to stay or should leave after the singing time.
- We will continue to have family workshops in the afternoon.
- The burden of these times is for the parents and burdened saints to come with their children to have a family time together.
- During this time, we will sing and have activities together, and also break into smaller groups to practice singing with the children and telling them stories.
- This year the workshops will be slightly later in the afternoon to allow the families to have more free time together.
- There will not be meetings for the adults in the evening and instead there will be activities available for families to do together such as bonfires, nature walks and games.
- In addition, you may be asked to help with some practical service for the young people’s conference such as setting up activities or doing room inspections.
We hope that many families would be able to attend this time. However, there will be a quota for the Parents’ and Children’s Conference of 450, including both adults and children. Registration is carried out in the same way as the young people’s conference: by filling in the registration form and paying on this website.
Children attending this time remain the responsibility of their parents or legal guardians at all times during the conference. The conference does not assume responsibility or supervision for any children including during children’s meetings and activities.
