Did you know just 50% of children growing up in Christian homes will keep their faith as adults.

What many people don't realise is that mums, dads and carers are the most important influence on children developing a faith that lasts.

The Kitchen Table Project raise awareness of the role mums and dads play and provide the tools and support to help parents succeed in inspiring faith at home.

What Churches Can Do

Alongside church leaders, we want to see every generation growing in their love for God.

We know that our churches have great programmes for children, but how much do we think about how we can equip and encourage parents as well, as they raise young disciples?

Kitchen Table Project and initiative of Care for the Family have loads of resources you can order or download (for free) to help families continue their faith journey at home.
