Faith at Home is a national campaign that builds on the work of Growing Faith and Everyday Faith to support the faith development and pastoral care of children and young people.
It seeks to provide:
- Experiences that inspire parents and families to grow in faith together in the ‘new daily normal’ of the home
- Resources that equip children and young people to explore faith together and feel supported pastorally as part of school and church communities
- Networks that connect school leaders, church leaders, chaplains to share great practise and build community together focused on the faith development of children and young people
Why the home?
Home is both a place and feeling. It is where we eat, where we sleep, where we find ourselves at the start and end of our day. Home is where we can feel the strongest sense of belonging, where we can feel connected to ‘our people’, where we can feel part of ‘our tribe’. It can also be a place of doubt, questions, loneliness and fear. While talking about being the vine, Jesus invites us to be at home in him, as he is at home in us (John 15:1-4 MSG). We are invited to imagine that we are sharing our everyday lives with each other and with God, intertwined by love as a community of growing faith.
