"He tends his flock like a shepherd:
he gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young."

Isaiah 40 v 11

We find ourselves back in lockdown again, but this time, with the knowledge that we've done this before, and the things we did in the other lockdowna to build on and draw on.

We are not any of us doing this alone, there are millions of parents/carers going through the same thing. We are here. If you need anything, just get in touch and we will do our best to help.

A great place to hear how other parents are doing especially in terms of working out their faith with their kids is our:

Faith in Families small group

We have one session left this term, but you would be more than welcome to join in. It's a great space to connect, share and here from someone in the church about something that's currently helping them do faith as a family.

Do sign up here:


Also if you have children with sensory needs you might like our Parenting Children with Sensory needs Group, which also has one session left this term:


Other Resources for Parents/Carers

Below are a selection of articles and videos that other churches and organisations have produced that we've found really helpful, which as the pandemic and lockdown continue are still very relevant:

Christian Resources for Parents/Carers, Kids and Families

If you are wondering how to be encouraging your children’s faith at this time or indeed looking into adding to or creating habits, we and others have found these useful (again not an exhaustive list and we will add to this).

Easter book recommendations:

Pre-school: The Promised One, Antonia Woodward (simple retelling in paperback)

Key-Stage 1: Easter Love Letters from God, Glenys Nellist and Sophie Allsopp , Zonderkidz (retelling of Easter story with notes from God to your child on each page)

Key-Stage 2: The Third Day, Alex Webb-Peploe and Andre Parker, The Good Book Company (graphic-novel-style book using NIV text of Luke's gospel)

We're all in this together so do share with us any resources you find particularly helpful.

Much love.

Manny & Sinead
