Navigating different churches and Christian experiences with our children
There are multiple scenarios in which we might take a children to a new church or Christian experience - perhaps whilst on holiday, for a family baptism, or attending a Christian festival. How can we ensure that, whether the experience is positive or negative, our children's faith is built as a result?
For an episode of the Parenting for Faith podcast, Lucy spoke to Matt McChlery who is a church leader, author, musician and dad. Matt shared the positives of exposing our children to different Christian traditions, whilst also giving great wisdom for when those experiences don’t go well.
From preparing our children prior to the experience, to framing while it’s going on, to debriefing afterwards, Matt helped us think about how we can use any Christian event, service or festival to help our child grow in faith.
