|One of the areas that a number of people have found positive during lockdown, while we can't meet in our church buildings, has been the opportunity to connect with parents alongside their children. We have been reminded that faith isn't something to simply be learned at church, it's also to be lived out during the rest of the week, including at home.
Research has shown that only 50% of children growing up in Christian households will keep their faith as adults and that Christian parents do not have confidence in sharing their faith. Some churches have managed to build stronger relationships with parents, by providing ideas and resources to encourage families to worship together and develop faith practices at home.
There are lots of ways that churches can reach out and connect with families, support parents and encourage living out faith at home. This newsletter shares information on some of these.
