The summit

The summit is an annual day of encouragement and equipping for Christians from around the UK who are passionate about adoption and fostering.

It is an opportunity to bless, inspire and share with others involved in fostering and adoption. It is also a great chance to bring along friends, family and leaders within the Church and community who want to learn how to better support those welcoming vulnerable children into their homes.

Here’s what some of our guests said about the 2016 summit:

I didn't expect to feel SO inspired!

We felt blessed, encouraged and inspired way better than we expected! Thank you!

Worship band were ace. Whatan inspiring group of passionate young Christians!

Thank you very much - I had a great day filled with excitement, teaching and hope for the future of our foster caring experience.

Really useful to connect with other social workers. It is so encouraging. I enjoyed hearing what's happening around the country.

The whole thing was amazing! Really well thought out and well put together!!

The children's work was absolutely outstanding. My child has very complex needs, and they were met amazingly.

I thought the conference had a wonderful support atmosphere! I think it is a very positive thing to run.

We loved all of it and were especially pleased that our children had such a good time in the kids' work.

Worship and prayer time was powerful and helpful.

Testimonies and stories are the BEST....hearing Justin's story was really inspiring.

I love listening to Krish share his heart of the story of Home for is so encouraging and makes every hard day worthwhile.

Although we have a wide range of experience of fostering, it was good to see others encouraged to considering fostering and adoption.

Meeting other adoptive parents to talk and pray together was very special.

Thank you for the retreat space and people to pray with me and for me.

It was excellent and inclusive! Thank you! The chance to mee others at the same stage of the journey was great.

Thank you for support in what my future might look like.

Networking opportunities were really helpful.

I came to the conference with basically no knowledge. Thank you for informing me. And I am eager to learn more.

I think the highlight of the day were the mainstage sessions as there was such an exciting buzz to be in a room with around 300 other Christians who love God and who are really interested in fostering and adoption... Also to see all the children in the building and families together and to know that most of the kids were probably foster or adopted kids was a highlight for me, as someone who is about to become an adoptive parent.
