Home - Faith and Worship

by Emma Waters last modified 25 Nov, 2020 12:26 PM
Supporting spiritual encounter and growth within households, has the potential to make a real difference in how families can experience, develop and practice their faith. It may deepen faith in people of all ages, help build lifelong habits of faith and help families to develop practices and a rhythm of life that has God at the centre.

Here you can find guidance and signposts to resources that can help you as leaders or families to develop meaningful opportunities for household worship.

The material has been written with input from the Diocesan Board of Education advisory team and the Ministry for Mission Resource Officer.

The Children’s Society Flexible Christingle/Doing Christingle differently - How will you be Christingling this year? - Hosted by Nikki Pawsey, Director of Supporter Communities & Groups, The Children’s Society.

Presented by Revd Bryony Taylor, Rector of Barlborough and Clowne, Diocese of Derby and adviser on our Virtual Christingle guide,  Revd Matt Tarling, Vicar of St Paul’s Spennymoor, Diocese of Durham, Victoria Bush, primary school teacher and author of our Christingle resources for schools, Tracey Messenger, Church Engagement Manager (Resources) at The Children’s Society and Nicola Gampell, Senior Innovation Officer, The Children’s Society.

Christingle has always been about bringing people together and embracing hope during the festive season, and in 2020, the spreading of hope feels especially important as we Pray, Serve and Grow through The Diocese of Salisbury and beyond!

The Children’s Society have created lots of new resources to help schools (and parishes) hold a safe and memorable celebration. These include:

Finally the Church of England is running a weekly church service and a Christingle national service  will be held on 13th December from 9am which you can encourage families to watch/you can follow up the following week as it will be available to be streamed from the Children’s Society page and CofE page.
