Home for Good invites you to join us for our third annual summit, gathering Christians passionate about adoption and fostering together for a day of encouragement and equipping.
The summit is an opportunity to bless, inspire and share with others involved in fostering and adoption. It is 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.
This year we will be holding the summit twice, which will hopefully enable even more people to join us. The programmes will be similar in content and structure for both venues, so please choose the date and location that works best for you and book on as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The first will be on 17 September 2016 in Doncaster, then the second will be a fortnight later on 1 October 2016 in Oxford.
BIG Ministries will be joining us again to provide a programme for children, from pre-schoolers (aged 3) to those in year 6. There will also be a crèche area full of activities for those bringing children under 3 where parents/carers can supervise their children and still be a part of the main programme.
We hope you can come and join with us – we look forward to meeting you and sharing together!

When & Where
Home for Good
Our vision is a home for every child who needs one.
As we head toward this goal, this is what we want to see:
- The UK Church knowing that there are children waiting to be adopted and a desperate need for more foster families – particularly older children, children from ethnic minorities, sibling groups and children with additional needs – and are part of the solution.
- The myths surrounding adoption and fostering that exist, particularly among Christians, being dispelled, and churches having a better understanding of the assessment process and being supportive of social workers.
- More Christians choosing to adopt and foster, and are able to find an agency or local authority to adopt or foster with, and are connected with children who are waiting.
- The church being equipped to be a welcoming place, and a supportive community, for families who foster or adopt.
- People who foster and adopt being easily able to access a network of ‘soft’ support and knowing where they can turn to for professional support.
- Agencies and local authorities being better equipped to work with churches and assessing social workers having a better understanding of faith so can ask better questions during the assessment process.
