Want to help the children and young people you love find God in everyday life? This course is for you! It’s not just mums and dads who long for children and teens to know God for themselves. Whether you’re a parent, carer, family member, friend, or church worker or leader, you can help the young people in your life develop a vibrant and connected relationship with God – whatever their age! The Parenting for Faith video-based course gives you confidence to share your life with God in a way that feels natural to you – and the tools to do it easily. More details from Becky or AJ or www.parentingforfaith.org. No pre-booking needed, though letting us know helps with refreshments.
