A highly popular Cliff College Online course led by our partners, BRF. This course is available now on our online learning platform - click 'register now' for details.
What is it to share Christian faith within the family? How can we better parent the children of our communities to grow in God, or as adults accompany children on the Christian journey? This course will equip students to successfully support parents and carers as they disciple their children and explore what parenting for faith might look like in their church and community. It will help develop foundational values and practices to operate out of, and establish practical steps to shape a culture where parenting for faith can flourish.
Led by Becky Sedgwick and Rachel Turner from our partners BRF, this 12 session online course offers an opportunity to complete an assignment and receive a Cliff College Certificate in Parenting for Faith.
Subject areas include:
- The current crisis in spiritual parenting,
- An overview of Parenting for Faith and its five key tools,
- Skills and values you need to successfully support your families,
- Parenting for Faith in children’s and youth work and intergenerational spaces,
- Working with your church and planning your next steps.
I think it's a fantastic course, much more in depth than I expected. The reflections at the end of each unit really challenge you and prepare you to move forward. I have learned so much about myself, my faith and my church on this journey and I've enjoyed being able to complete it over a period of time. It has informed much of my current planning and I've felt that I've made real progress. Rachel and Becky are inspirational and intelligent speakers who draw on a wealth of experiences, I totally recommend it.
The self-paced format of this course gives me the flexibility of managing it well alongside raising my two little girls. The length of the videos is spot on and they are easy to focus on and engage with as both Becky and Rachel are great communicators. The course has helped me to dream bigger and to re- imagine the work with children and families in a new exciting way.
