Contemplative practices are increasingly used with children across nurseries and schools and are recognised as ways of improving wellbeing. Yet these are rarely used in churches with children, instead focusing on activity and activeness as a way to ensure that children stay engaged. This book shows the many benefits of instead exploring stillness, mindfulness and other contemplative practices in Christian settings. Looking at how these practices can be rooted in Christian tradition, and full of practical examples of how they can be introduced, this resource offers anyone involved in Christian children's work an alternative way of worship that is essential to the wellbeing of children and adults.
