Supporting parents in your church

Raising children can be a physical and emotional rollercoaster! And that’s why mums and dads need all the support they can get – to help them through both the joys and challenges of being a parent.

As Christians we may be particularly concerned about how we can help parents in our churches to raise our children in the faith. Offering a course to your community is a great way you can reach out to people and help them in their everyday lives – and also put them in touch with the church. And the content can also benefit those parents within your congregation.

The Kitchen Table Project

The Kitchen Table Project is a movement of mums, dads and carers learning together and encouraging each other to inspire faith at home.

As churches, you have the opportunity to encourage, equip and inspire parents to live out a real and authentic faith at home. We are here to provide resources, host events and connect you to the conversation, to enable you to support the parents in your church community.

Your Free Church Toolkit

The toolkit has been designed as a pick-and-mix of resources that you can use in a way that suits your individual church.

The aim is to develop a culture among parents and the church as a whole that helps us all be involved in nurturing our children’s faith in a real and natural way. Our vision is that as a result, many more of our young people grow up with a lasting faith in God.

Have a look at the User Guide and then download anything you would like to use. Or, find out more from our church ambassador, Gerrit Bantjes, below.
