The Kitchen Table Project

They also want to support and equip churches in encouraging parents to help their children grow up loving God.

Scripture presumes that faith formation occurs within intergenerational, familial and community settings. Hear2Stay is a collaborative initiative set up in Australia, looking at how discipleship and leadership can bring about transformative change in our young people. They have 2 foundational principles (intergenerational and family ministry) and propose 8 formational principles to help strengthen the church.
