Hull is one of the first places to be chosen to showcase an event for parents to help nurture their children’s faith in religion.
The national charity, Care for the Family, says that just 50% of children growing up in Christian homes are keeping their faith as adults. Research shows that the majority of Christians come to faith before the age of 19 and the early years are particularly important in developing beliefs.
Raising Faith is a brand new event this autumn for mums and dads, looking at the simple steps to take to help nurture their child’s faith in the day to day.
Katharine Hill, the UK Director for the charity, said: “We found that although many believe it is their responsibility to teach their children about God, many feel the church is better placed to do it. Lots of parents said they felt unqualified, didn’t know where to start and were worried about putting their children off God.”
Mother-of-four Katharine, and Andy Frost, who is the Director of Share Jesus International, will inspire the audience with plenty of practical tips for how to point children to God in everyday family activities. It will adopt a seminar format with teaching from Andy and Katharine. The event will take place at the Jubilee Church, King Edward Street, Hull, on Thursday 22nd November, 7.30pm.
