Book: Faithfull Generation: 10 foundations for lifelong faith formation with children in families, churches and communities

Faithfull Generation brings together 10 key insights about how we can help ourselves and our churches develop resilient faith in our children.

The 10 key insights include:
Community: helping the church to thrive as a growing, intergenerational faith community, whilst supporting the family as a key place of spiritual nurture
Encounter: creating opportunities for children to connect with the big story of the Bible and space where they can encounter the living Jesus for themselves.
Dialogue: Encouraging faith to be both talked out and lived out, within peer relationships and supported by the wider church family.
Milestones: Enabling peak experiences in the lives of children and celebrating key moments and anchor points in their life and spiritual journey.
Action: Allowing children to contribute as active participants in mission and giving them the opportunity to respond with compassion to the world around them.

Each contribution is from a hands-on practitioner active in children's ministry and advocacy. Each chapter introduces the writer and also contains suggestions for further reading and practical resource material.

The Faithfull Generation project is the work of several Christian agencies and denominations and is promoting dialogue, learning communities and resource promotion around all of the 10 key insights.
