FAMILY LIFE

Growing in family and in life

The Family is the basic building block or unit of society. It is God-ordained. The family exists for the establishment and development of God-centered relationships and fellowship, godly character, natural and spiritual reproduction & dominion; and God-appointed ministry and functions.

With this in mind, Family Life provides help and resources for courting couples, parents and families to build healthy relationships, marriages and families.


The Culture we promote

Accountability - Hold ourselves accountable to each other
Community - Committing ourselves to life together as the people of God.
Stewardship - Love and care for our family that reflects God and glorify His name.


 

OUR COURSES

THE PARENTING CHILDREN COURSE

As parents, we understand how difficult it can be to nurture our children effectively. Know that you are not alone as we embrace these challenges together.

This course is for all parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of children aged 0-10 years.

It includes:

  • A video presentation with filmed clips of family members' experiences of parenting or being parented, street interviews, and advice from parenting experts.
  • Small group discussions amongst other parents/ caregivers.

THE PARENTING TEENAGERS COURSE

A child's adolescence is an age many parents find difficult to deal with. It is then crucial to understand our teenagers' needs so that we can help them set healthy boundaries, develop their emotional health and teach them to make right choices. We believe that these steps will also help strengthen our relationship with our teenagers.

This course is for all parents and caregivers of teenagers aged 11-18 years old.

It includes:

  • A video presentation with footage of family experience sharing, street interviews, and advice from parenting experts.
  • Small group discussions amongst other parents/ caregivers.
