Parents, Carers and Teenagers

Parents and carers of teenagers can be tempted to think that they have no influence in their teens’ lives anymore.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

We know that you want to encourage and equip them in their crucial role as they help their teens find where God is in the midst of it all, understand who God is, develop an authentic prayer life with Him and access His love, peace and guidance wherever they are, explore their unique purpose in God’s kingdom and engage with His church.

In the autumn, we are running an online Parenting for Faith course specifically for the parents, grandparents and carers of teens, or people who work with or have teens in their life.  The 8 week Zoom course will be taught live by Rachel Turner on Wednesday evenings from 29th September to 24th November (excluding 27th October), from 7.30 – 9pm.   This is a unique opportunity to be with other parents and carers of teens, as we explore together what parenting for faith looks like with this age group.  Each session will be a mix of teaching, individual reflection and group discussion.

People can sign up as an individual household for £15 or as a church host for £50.  We’re really hoping that churches will gather their parents and carers, in person or online, and do the course together.  A church host will be sent the Zoom link to distribute to an unlimited number of families and then host their group’s discussion either in a dedicated breakout room or in person.
