We are so excited to be hosting our sixth Summit, and our first ever to be fully online!

While we would usually spend a whole day together, we realised that expecting you to spend an entire Saturday on a computer screen isn’t ideal or practical, so we will be offering the same inspirational content you’d find at the Summit over a series of evenings, premiering at 8pm each night. If you can’t tune in live, you’ll be able to watch the majority of content at a later time at your leisure.

By signing up, you will be able to access all the main sessions and your selection of webinars hosted by the Home for Good team, but it’s up to you how much you join us for (although, obviously, we’d recommend jumping in to every session!) And it’s all completely free and available to enjoy from the comfort of your own home.

Summit 2020 is a chance to imagine together. To imagine a better future for vulnerable children as we equip the Church and individuals to play their part. To imagine what our families might look like as we open our homes to vulnerable children. To imagine better systems and structures that enable every child to thrive. We will seek God together, knowing and trusting that He is ‘able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…’ (Ephesians 3:20).

The Summit is for everyone who cares about vulnerable children, whether you’re a foster carer, kinship carer, special guardian or adoptive parent, or you’re part of the support network around a family. If you’re passionate about the Church responding to the needs of the vulnerable, you’re wondering whether fostering or adoption might be for you now or in the future, or you just want to find out more about the Home for Good vision and how you can get involved. All are welcome!

Join us to be inspired, encouraged and equipped to play your part for vulnerable children.

For children and young people

A central part of our Summit is blessing the children and young people who attend with a fantastic day of fun, and we have thought carefully and prayed about how best to recreate this given the current circumstances. We know how hard online engagement can be for many children, especially those who have experienced early trauma (which our team wrote about here), and we also know there can be safeguarding concerns as well. So rather than expect the children in your care to have to cope with even more online engagement, we would love to send them something special to enjoy the fun of the Summit at home.

The brilliant team at YFC lead the children’s and youth ministry at our Summit, and they have helped us build some fantastic activity packs, including some short teaching and story videos, craft ideas, quizzes and challenges, and a few little extra (non-edible) treats.

We have created 400 packs and would love to send them to the children and young people in your care completely FREE because we want them to know how precious they are. As we have a limited number make sure you sign up fast to secure a pack. Digital versions of the packs are also available to those who miss out on a postal pack, or anyone who would prefer a digital version.

As you register for the summit you can request age-appropriate packs and they’ll be sent out in the second half of November. Please select the age bracket that you feel would best suit your child’s developmental age.

Programme Overview

Sunday 22 November

  • Main session 1 with keynote speaker Charlotte Curran, stories, interviews and prayer.

Monday 23 November

  • Webinars, choose from:

1. Imagine if the UK Church…

Join us for a panel discussion exploring how the Church can respond to meet the needs of care experienced children and their families. With inspiring stories and suggestions for good practice, this webinar will be ideal for all in church leadership or who are part of a church community and wants to ensure their church is welcoming, safe and supportive for vulnerable children and their families.

2. Re-imagine family…

Exploring the fulness of all that family is and could be. Understanding the Biblical foundations that underpin our beliefs and a chance to consider what our families could look like. Ideal for anyone who is wondering what their future might hold or keen to think a bit more deeply.

3. Imagining more and navigating less for our children…

For foster and adoptive parents who are experiencing the highs and lows of parenting, trying to hold on to faith and grace in the midst of challenges, and doing their best to champion for their children. Featuring real stories and highlighting Biblical principles, this webinar aims to affirm and equip you as you press on.

Tuesday 24 November

  • Webinars, choose from:

1. Imagine if the Global Church…

With millions of children currently living in orphanages, on the streets and as victims of child trafficking, we believe the Global Church needs to rise up at this crucial moment and become an integral part of helping children come home to family. Aimed at church leaders and those passionate about mission, outreach and serving vulnerable children around the world, this webinar will inspire and equip you with practical steps for getting involved in this global movement.

2. Imagine your next steps…

Getting to grips with the fostering and adoption application and assessment process, with stories from those who’ve experienced it and a chance to ask questions of our friendly team. For anyone who’s ever wondered about fostering or adopting or is beginning to explore it for themselves.

3. When you’ve got nothing left to imagine with…

Recognising the reality of compassion fatigue in parents and carers, and acknowledging the additional (false) baggage that can accompany it for Christians. For anyone feeling they are at or nearing that point, or alongside people who might be, we want to offer you encouragement and consider some things that might help.

Wednesday 25 November

  • Main session 2 with our CEO Tania Bright and Founding Director Krish Kandiah in conversation, alongside features and inspirational stories.

Thursday 26 November

  • Webinar: Home for Good near you with stories from across the Home for Good network in every part of the UK and ideas for how you can get involved to find a home for every child who needs one.

Friday 27 November

  • Main session 3 with keynote speaker Rachel Hughes and other great friends of Home for Good offering some final words of inspiration and encouragement.
