Home for Good Conference

Home for Good Conference

The 2019 Home for Good Conference will take place on Saturday 21st September in Stirling.

Home for Good is gathering Christians who are passionate about caring for vulnerable children. They believe the Church is ideally placed to meet their needs by finding loving homes through fostering and adoption and ensuring that families who care are part of a supportive community.

The Home for Good Conference is a day of teaching, seminars, worship and prayer, as they explore together how they can each play our part to support vulnerable children and encourage the families who care for them. If you are a foster carer or adoptive parent, church leader or youth leader, social worker or other professional, and you are considering fostering or adoption or you simply want to stand with those who do, you are more than welcome to join the Conference.

Adult tickets cost £16 and children and young people go FREE!
