The Parenting for Faith course online

Would you like to help your children have a vibrant, two-way relationship with God? Come along to these sessions and get equipped with five Key Tools that ordinary parents can use in everyday life, to help them do that. Based on the book Parenting Children for a Life of Faith by Rachel Turner, the course will help parents discover that they are perfectly positioned to show their children the reality of a life with God.

The course will run on Zoom on Monday nights, in two four-week blocks, that avoid half term holidays. The sessions are suitable for anyone with children or teenagers in their life. There are two ways to sign up – as an individual, or churches can sign up to host their own group, and there are more details about those options via the button below.
