"A Children's Communion Book' is meant first and foremost to be used by church-going young children -- those for whom the full edition of 'A New Zealand Prayer Book: He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa' is too big, too complicated or too precious to handle. It is also for the parents who take their children to church: may this book be a support to you, along with the raisins, soft toys and other aids to peace and concentration". -- How to use this book.

Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Christmas 1997. A series of short reports from 12 different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of abuse and exploitation of children and youth."Exploitation and abuse of young people is not just confined to the developing world. Violence, child prostitution and other unacceptable forms of child labour flourish in the U.K and U.S.A., as well as in Africa and South America. In its 1997 Report on the State of the World's Children, UNICEF stated that primary education for all would lessen the abuses of child labour and the cycle of poverty it helps to perpetuate. This is an aim for governments, churches, and individuals."
