Parenting as Church Leaders Sessions
We have created training sessions especially for the unique challenge of parenting for faith when you're a leader in the church too. Our next events are a day on 22 June or four evening session on Thursdays in November. Booking will open shortly.
The Forge Gathering
The Forge Gathering is an annual residential retreat for children's, youth and families workers (both paid and voluntary) hosted by Rachel Turner and the Parenting for Faith team. We will be closely following government guidelines but hope to hold two gatherings, one online 9 - 10 June and one in November either in The Peak District or online.
The Certificate in Parenting for Faith course in association with Cliff College is now available as an online course. Designed to stretch, inform and inspire those working in a professional or voluntary capacity with children, young people and families in churches, this course will equip you to successfully support parents and carers as they disciple their children and explore what parenting for faith might look like in your church and community.
