Children and faith

It’s estimated that only 50% of the children of Christian parents grow up with a personal faith of their own as adults.

So within our Faith in the Family initiative, we want to equip Christian parents to ‘pass on’ faith to their children. As parents, we are our children’s biggest influence – but we often feel ill equipped, or simply don’t know where to start.
