Someone once quipped that parenting is the only job you can never get trained for – you can read all the manuals, attend all the how-to sessions, but when it comes to actually looking after your own child, we’re all learners.

To care for, nurture and raise another human being is a wonderful privilege and a profound experience. As a church our desire is to encourage and equip parents to be the best they can be and to model faith to their children in real and effective ways.

Both The Parenting Children Course (for parents of 1-10 year olds), and The Parenting Teenagers Course (for parents of 11-18 year olds) run for 5 weeks and are for all parents/carers whether parenting on their own, as step-parents or as a couple. Each course includes informative and fun practical talks with film clips, street interviews and advice from parenting experts as well as small group discussions with parents at a similar stage.

Upcoming course: We are running The Parenting Teenagers Course in May/June 2018 on five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 15 May – 12 June. See this flyer for full details.

Please email David if you are interested in finding out more. Course costs are $35 per person ($70 per couple) and include course material and delicious supper.
