“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

As our groups and courses take a break for the Summer, we hope that you as a family are able to take a break too, whether you get away or it’s just a break from usual activities and routines.

The Summer can be a good time to make traditions as a family, be that ice-creams out, board games, cycle rides…… It can also be a time when the family spends more time together than usual… although after the last 18 months that may not be so true! In any event, we’ve included some resources below for activities, guidance on sibling fights and some more Christian resources to continue your family’s journey of faith.

Finally, we’ve prepared some activities to do as a family to pray together and reflect on the world around you.

The folk at VCUKI have used their amazing graphic skills to produce a wonderful resource. Do take a look. It is adaptable to any age and do let us know how you get on. We’d love to hear from you.

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:

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).

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

Much love.
