The Child Theology Movement does not exist as one authoritative teaching but is a developing inquiry, now engaging theologians and Churches in five continents. It is based in the report of Jesus placing a child in the midst recorded in Matt. 18:3. The “child in the midst” can be considered as a correction to the theological discussion of the disciples.

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the relevance of aspects of the Child Theology Movement from interviews with Children’s Pastors and Ministers in selected Churches in Melbourne, Australia. The research pays due regard to the extensive writing in various theologies of the child from which this new movement has grown. The Child Theology Movement is considered as part of the evolving nature of theological thought that can have an impact on the whole church in a similar way to the impact of Liberation Theology and Feminist Theology.
