Fetuses Beware

Church recruiting drive targets two-year-olds

"Children as young as two are to be targeted as part of a new campaign to recruit young people back to the church, the Guardian has learned.
The Church of England is planning its first concerted drive to engage under- 18s after admitting that it is comprehensively failing to connect with children and teenagers.
Proposals will be put before the general synod in February that include a blueprint to set up breakfast, homework and sports clubs in schools as well as working in publicly funded toddler playgroups to spread the Christian word.
A document outlining the proposals, seen by the Guardian, says urgent action is needed to shore up the number of children in church.
"We need to reconsider how we engage with and express God's love to this generation of children and young people, whoever and wherever they may be," it says."
