Adoption Sunday is an opportunity each year for the Church to share the good news of our adoption into God’s family and to respond to the needs of children and young people in the UK care system.
35,000 children come into the UK care system each year. They are removed from chaotic, traumatic, abusive, neglectful or desperate situations. Some need a home for a few nights, months or years, whilst others are not able to return to their birth families and need a new forever family. With 15,000 churches nationally, the charity ‘Home for Good’ believes the Church is ideally placed to help find the foster and adoptive homes that are in constant need.
5th November – Adoption Sunday
We are asking your church to spare 5 mins on Sunday 5th November or set aside time another Sunday to help raise awareness and consider our calling as individuals and as a Church to support the vulnerable.
Every year, Home for Good provides resources to help you. This year essential items include a video & prayers. If you want to include more in your service there are sermon notes and slides, ideas for worship and children’s activities. All you need to do is sign up through the website.
Home for Good: Suffolk…
…is a local movement, connected with the national charity Home for Good. It has been operational since 2014 and now sits under its own registered charity, Transforming Futures-Suffolk. The local movement is here to promote the local need through churches as well as provide events and activities to allow all Suffolk foster cares, adopters, kinship carers and special guardians an opportunity to connect for support and friendship.
