A fortnightly meeting with leaders to discuss a chapter of the book 'It Takes A Church To Raise A Parent: Creating a culture where parenting for faith can flourish' - by Rachel Turner. Each session will include prayer, an opportunity to feedback on actions committed to in the previous session, discussion of the week’s chapter, reflection on what God might be saying to us on this topic, an action we commit to trying before the next meeting.



CCCNZ will provide the book, a reflective journal to assist you in your learning, and a reading plan for the course.

Participants will read a chapter or two per the provided reading plan each fortnight.

The group will meet on Zoom fortnightly to discuss the chapter(s) of the book.  We reflect individually and corporately about what God might be saying to us in our own context and in the movement as a whole.
