It is my thesis that the Child Theology Movement is a new and significant aspect of cultural change within the Christian church that will have resonance with the wider community, affecting parenting behaviour as well as spiritual and religious education. This paper examines some of the aspects of children’s spirituality that link to and have value in the Child Theology Movement. These aspects are: living based in relationship, living in vulnerability, living in creativity and play, living in openness and hope.
