A resource for encouraging discipleship across households.

Our Colleagues, Melissa Neumann (Uniting Church Synod of South Australia) and Chris Barnett (Uniting Church Synod of Victoria and Tasmania) have complied and developed this resources to assist ministry leaders to connect families with resources that nurture faith formation at home.

Here are a variety of five (5) great resources with awesome tips to encourage families to connect with other families regularly. The aim is to assist ministry leaders in enabling discipleship, particularly for families with children.

‘Connecting Families, Nurturing Faith’ is a resource for ministry leaders to encourage discipleship across households. It includes a step by step process, a checklist, ideas to share with families and information about four recommended resources. This is not another discipleship resource but is a tool to assist ministry leaders to choose a resource, to communicate with families to nurture faith at home and to encourage families to connect with each other, particularly while we cannot meet face-to-face.

The resource is awesome and has great content. With such a rich variety offering something different, which is wonderful to give ministry leaders choice about what might work for them in their context.
