Hand in Hand: Enjoying faith as a family
This resource is intended both for those parents who already have a strong faith and desire to nurture this in their children, and for those who feel less certain.
The Booklet comprises a number of section which:
    • Connect us with a God who is love and who loves us daily.
    • Offers practical ways in which t share family spirituality.
    • Help us enjoy finding faith in our families.
    • Celebrate the wonder of life in good times and bad.
    • Help us to find out more about the Bible together.
    • Enable us to develop our personal and family faith.

As well as being a stand alone resource (it could be a good Baptismal  present) it would also work well with a parents’ group who want to explore how they experience faith in their family. The booklet, which costs just £2, is available from:
