Out of the question: Faith in the home

08 February 2010

Your answers

Why do other faiths (and maybe other denominations) seem so much better at passing on their beliefs and traditions to the next generation than the Church of England is? Have we given up on church teaching in the home? [Answers, 22 January]

I would like to offer some encour­age­ment. Over the past 12 months, we at Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), along with many other indi­viduals and organisations, have been working to research and resource this important area.

We have found that many people, ranging from parents or carers to church leaders, are committed to developing the Christian faith in the home.

Anyone who would like to know more can contact me at BRF.
