[x_video_embed][/x_video_embed] Home for Good has a voice into approximately 15,000 churches. There are 15,000 children in the UK without a home. If one family in each of these churches chose to foster or adopt, there would be no children in the UK without a home.
Just over year ago we played catch up with what God was already doing with our church. We now have several people in our church fostering and adopting and considering fostering and adopting. Today we are celebrating and taking part with over 200 churches in the Home for Good Adoption Sunday.
We'll be playing this video, sharing our vision for fostering and adoption and praying for those fostering and adopting.
What has gripped us the most is the vision that we can all be engaged in this generation changing ministry. Here is what we are pursuing together as a church family.
1. Kids experience: that the kids experience life in a church family and as part of a church family whether that's for a few weeks, or a few years
2. It takes a church to raise a child: All our church members are able to support parents and families with skills and support resource needs (i.e accounting services, house alterations, child care etc)
3. Culture of Normal and Consideration: That it would be normal for people in our church to consider fostering and adoption and want to be involved
4. Home for Good with Local Authority: Engage our local authority with us and other churches to address the local need for fostering and adoption
