Parenting for Faith

28 Oct–1 Nov 2024 (Mon–Fri)

We all want to help our children to meet and know God but in the busyness of everyday life sometimes it can feel like one more thing to squeeze in. During the week we’ll explore five practical tools that you can use as a natural and normal part of your everyday life without having to find more time or energy. Come ready to think about how you learn, grow and connect with God and how to co-journey alongside your children or teenagers to help them to do the same. Anna is the Parenting for Faith Ministry Lead at BRF Ministries.

A children’s and youth programme will run alongside the Worship and Teaching sessions.
