Equiping and encouraging parents in their crucial role - passing on faith in Jesus to their children

The Council for Congregational Life & Witness continues in its aim to enable congregations to equip and encourage parents in their crucial role of passing on faith in Jesus to their children, within the context of a strong covenant community of God’s people. Parents cannot do this alone – we are all in this together!

One of the most common reasons parents give for not teaching the Bible or worshipping at home with their children and young people is that they do not know where to start, or what good resources they could use. There are currently some wonderful resources which Christian families can use at home, but it is important that these are promoted, and parents encouraged to try some! Some families prefer not to use resources but to simply read the Bible together – obviously something we all should do. However there is a great value in using quality, Bible-based, Christ-centred resources, and the booklet available in the download window contains a range of just some of them. There is no “one size fits all” and this is not an exhaustive list, but it will be kept regularly updated.
