Event Details

We are excited to announce our first Northern Ireland summit!

The summit is a day of gathering, connnecting, inspiring and equipping Christians who are passionate about adoption and fostering.

It is an opportunity to bring along friends, family and leaders within the Church community who want to learn how to better support those welcoming vulnerable children into their homes.

Saturday 23 September 2017
10.00am-4.30pm (Registration from 9.15am)
Glenabbey Church, Ballycraigy Road, Newtonabbey, BT36 5ZZ

The summit will be open to all, with a programme for children (P1-P7) and youth (years 8-10). There will also be a crèche area for under 4s full of activities. The crèche will be unsupervised but with a link to mainstage so parents/carers can be involved in the programme whilst looking after their young children.

We hope you can come and join with us – we look forward to meeting you and connecting together!

Here’s what some of our guests said about the summit in England last year:

I didn't expect to feel SO inspired!

Meeting other adoptive parents to talk and pray together was very special.

It was excellent and inclusive! Thank you! The chance to meet others at the same stage of the journey was great.

Thank you for support in what my future might look like.

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.
