Church worship and fellowship are some of the vital and much cherished activities of the Christian church across all Christian denominations in the church universal. Denominations may have varying doctrines which affect Christians differently. One group which is usually affected by the church doctrines in worship is the group of children. All Christian denominations which baptise children will accept that baptised children become full Christians with gifts of the Holy Spirit. What remains critical is whether children are actually treated as such by the church establishment. The work makes Ankole diocese of the Anglican Church in Uganda the case study. The church doctrines in Ankole diocese are identical with the doctrines of the Anglican Communion world over and to a bigger extent with the church universal. Does it affect children when they are denied sacraments like Holy Communion? Or when they don't regularly worship with adults? The work in this book is basically intended for all the Christians of all denominations. The Anglican Church and particularly the church in Uganda will have this book as a direct tool for church mission. May God bless you as you read this book!
