What is Parenting for Faith

Parenting for Faith helps parents spiritually nurture children and teens to have a lasting, vibrant two-way relationship with God. Through groundbreaking coursesevents and trainingresources and a thriving social media community, we…

  • help thousands of parents and carers to grow in confidence and skill
  • enable church workers to create communities that support them
  • support church leaders who are parents themselves.

What we’re working on

BRF’s Parenting for Faith team are working to inspire and equip parents to raise God-connected children and teens, as well as providing churches with the support they need.

We’re working on:

How Parenting for Faith is funded

Each year we need around £340,000 to sustain and develop Parenting for Faith. The vast majority of these funds are donated by individuals, churches and charitable trusts.

We are so thankful to those who have generously given to support this ministry.

While we do generate some income for Parenting for Faith through charitable activities, for example training events, this income doesn’t cover the full cost of what we offer. Read more about how we are funded here.

"It’s really practical and hands-on so it gives tools for parents to start doing this stuff, not just the theoretical framework."

It’s really encouraging to see how the parents [of teenagers] put this into practice and bring conversations alive; they’re sharing about Jesus when they eat or in their daily life, those little windows they have to talk about Jesus.
