Just 50% of children growing up in Christian homes will keep their faith as adults. The Kitchen Table Project is a growing movement of mums and dads supporting each other, sharing ideas and encouragement, inspiring faith in our children. The project is the start of a conversation which includes resources and ideas to help in the journey of discovering how we can nurture faith at home.
Care for the Family start this conversation by inviting mums and dads to run an Inspire session to start thinking about faith at home. The Inspire Session is an opportunity to meet with other parents to chat about children and faith and figure out together where in the world to start!
