FaithAction Coffee House

We’re opening up a weekly FaithAction Coffee House for all of our members.

With the help of one or two guest speakers, we will facilitate a conversation on a topic of interest to you, before opening the floor for each of you to share any stories, best-practices, or challenges you’ve faced. It’s an opportunity for each of you to share what you’ve learnt with others, and to glean wisdom and ideas from each other as you learn about what other members around the country are up to.

You’re likely facing many of the same challenges; why not see if anyone else has a solution!

Wednesday 21st October, 11am

This week's theme will be looking after children during services

Equipping places of worship to serve their communities.

We are focusing the next few Coffee House sessions on equipping places of worship to serve their communities on a number of areas that have been most affected by COVID-19. This forms part of our Faith COVID Response project.

As they have reopened their doors, places of worship have been trying to grapple with the issue of childcare provision during their communal worship services, leaving many families feeling unable to return. However, there are many places of worship who have found fantastic ways to provide for their children, where they can be safe and engaged in their own activities, while allowing their parents to be part of the service.

Come along to the Coffee House next week to join the discussion and hear from our panellists about the ways they have implemented childcare provision within their places of worship.

  • Have you found a way to provide childcare during your services?
  • Are you confused about the rules and want to know what you can offer?
  • Do you have an idea that you would like to implement, but are unsure whether it will work?

Panellists include:
