Description

Gail Adcock invites you to the launch of 'The Essential Guide to Family Ministry' on Wednesday 5th February 2020. With over 25 years experience of working with children and families, Gail has captured her learning and insights in the pages of this book. Written for anyone working with families across the life and ministry of the Church, this book is a must have for practitioners in this field.

The Essential Guide provides a comprehensive foundation for those working in the increasingly complex and diverse area of ministry with families. The book presents an overview of contemporary family live, sets out the principles that underpin this work and offers strategic and practical approaches to working with families.

What they say:

"Gail Adcock is a realist with great vision. ‘Real’ in that she knows from the inside how family life ‘works’, earthed in her own experience of family and the rich diversity of families gracing 21st century Britain; ‘visionary’ because she encourages a positive, hope-filled, strengths based approach in ministry, building on the goodness found in families quietly getting on with the business of loving each other as best they can. She affirms that in family ministry we stand on holy ground: God has been there before us! Recognising this is surely the essential ingredient in all the church’s work with families."

Caroline Dollard, Marriage and Family Life Adviser with Catholic Bishops Conference in England and Wales

"I have read your book cover-to-cover twice. And it was absolutely wonderful. Informative, research-rich, practical, essential. I want every church leader, youth and children specialist, heck every school to read this book. This will become one of the must-read, foundational books on this subject that has ever and will ever be written. It truly is a wonderful book."

Rachel Turner, Parenting for Faith Pioneer

"Families don’t come in one size – nor does family ministry! Adcock lifts the lid on the theological underpinning and practical outworking of ministry with families of all shapes, stages and sizes. It should be a ‘must read’ for any church whether they are just considering family ministry or have been involved in it for some time."

Mary Hawes, National Children and Youth Adviser, The Church of England
