What churches can do

Alongside church leaders, we want to see every generation growing in their love for God.

We know that our churches have great programmes for children, but how much do we think about how we can equip and encourage parents as well, as they raise young disciples?


Why this is so important

We’ve been talking to church leaders across the country about why this is so important to our churches.

One church leader we spoke to said:

“It strikes me that there is no single occasion in the year where I as a church leader have the opportunity to speak to parents directly about their parenting – and yet it’s such an important issue.”

We have some great ways you can start this journey with parents in your congregation.
