Parenting Group for the Parish – starts next week!

Strengthen family bonds through faith ….

Our last Parenting Group was such a success, we have decided to start a second group this year!

There is still time to come and join a group of like-minded parents and carers from the Parish to discover that you are perfectly positioned to show your children the reality of a life with God and to empower them to have their own vibrant two-way relationship with him.

Explore how to create strong and healthy foundations of faith in children, as well as practical support to enhance family relationships.

Designed for parents and caregivers of primary school aged children, the sessions will be fun, relaxed, and interactive allowing for the sharing of ideas and experiences.
