Welcome to the parent zone!

This is a new page - but we hope it will grow into a really helpful place for parents. Scroll down for some helpful resources to get you thinking.


Faith in Kids is an organisation that looks 'to encourage, inspire and equip the influencers of faith in children with support, training and resources' - which means not only are they a good resource for youth and children's workers - but also to parents - a child's main 'influencers of faith'. 

They produce a podcast as well as a blog, which may be a helpful resource for you as parents. You can access these through the links on the left. They have also produced a book.

Faith in Parents

Podcast by Faith in Kids

The Faith in Kids podcast is all about helping families raise children in the Christian faith. On this stream, you'll find lots of podcast for parents, presented by Ed, Amy and Jam, as well as a whole load of podcasts in Season 1 which are to be listened to as a family together. We’re not trying to give you the answers, but a few starting points. We hope and pray you’ll be inspired to give it a go. Every family can.

Aren't They Lovely
When They're Asleep?

Book by Ann Benton

Ann Benton used to run parenting skills classes in local schools. People kept saying 'This is great, where do you get this stuff?'
She came clean, 'Actually, it's from the Bible.'

This book contains the wisdom distilled from Ann's popular seminars on parenting the next generation. She uses a 'God's eye view' of what we are really like in order to help people who are seeking to be responsible parents in an increasingly child-centred society.

You will learn six key concepts: accept, beware, communicate, discipline, evaluate and fear the Lord. These are applied with understanding and sensitivity.
