The issue

Just 50% of children growing up in Christian homes will keep their faith as adults.

What many people don’t realise is that mums, dads and carers are the most important influence on children developing a faith that lasts.

The Kitchen Table Project is here to help mums, dads and carers and churches to talk together about how we can inspire faith in our children.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of just how important parents are in building our children’s faith. We can’t just rely on the great children’s work that happens in our churches to teach our children about God. However important that may be, it’s not a substitute for the amazing opportunity we have at home with our children.

We want to give reminders, ideas and opportunities for us all to be more intentional about how we help our children’s love for God grow while they are young.

Our primary focus will be on equipping parents with children aged under 11. However, we know that it’s never too late to start, and we don’t stop at any point either! We will be signposting to lots of resources that help at different ages too.
