Creating safe and engaging virtual spaces with children and young people
The arrival of Coronavirus has had a great impact on the whole of life and we are all acclimatising to new ways of being, particularly as we distance ourselves socially and self-isolate when unwell.
As we move into this new era of creating community and gathering together, we are finding ways to grow faith together in virtual spaces with children, young people and families. Doing this for the first time may seem daunting but we have some simple guidance for group leaders that will enable us to make it happen safely and well.
