Family Minstries:

Family Ministries at Chancellor Church work to partner church and family to make disciples. We do so through helping equip families to disciple their own children while providing age relevant gospel centred discipleship to children. To this end we strive to create warm community for young people to join the Church in living out our Mission, to Glorify God & Make Disciples.
