How is the Church working with families today? What does this ministry look like? What training and resources are available for those working in this field?
CGMC and The Methodist Church commissioned research into family ministry and launched it at a conference in September 2015. This ground breaking project explores a range of themes looking at the current shape of work with families across the church in the UK.
