Spread the word about this event:

Home for Good is gathering Christians who are passionate about caring for vulnerable children. We believe the Church is ideally placed to meet their needs by finding loving homes through fostering and adoption and ensuring that families who care are part of a supportive community.

The Home for Good Conference is a day of teaching, seminars, worship and prayer, as we explore together how we can each play our part to support vulnerable children and encourage the families who care for them. If you are a foster carer or adoptive parent, church leader or youth leader, social worker or other professional, you are considering fostering or adoption or you simply want to stand with those who do, we would love you to join us.

Adult tickets cost £16 and children and young people go FREE!
