Early bird rate available until 29 February 2020!

Home for Good invites you to join us for our sixth Summit, gathering Christians who are passionate about fostering and adoption together for a day of encouragement and equipping.

Summit 2020 is a chance to imagine as we gather together. To imagine a better future for vulnerable children as we equip the Church and individuals to play their part. To imagine what our families might look like as we open our homes to vulnerable children. To imagine better systems and structures that enable every child to thrive. We will seek God together, knowing and trusting that He is ‘able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…’ (Ephesians 3:20).

This is a great opportunity to connect with others involved in fostering and adoption, and it is a 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.

We are so excited to be able to offer free places for children and youth to attend the Summit. We hope that this will really bless your family. We will have a full programme of activities for children aged four to 18, as well as a creche area for children under three, where parents and carers can supervise their children and still engage with the wider programme.

We do hope you can join us for our 2020 Summit!

Early bird rate available until 29 February 2020* - adult tickets cost from £20 and children and young people go FREE (excl. lunch)!

*after 29 February 2020 adult tickets cost from £24 but children and young people continue to be FREE (excl. lunch).

Speakers

Sarah Naish

Sarah qualified as a social worker in 1991 and is a Therapeutic Parent of five adopted children. It is this experience that was applied to our successful therapeutic model within the fostering agency she previously owned, which she has since sold and set up Inspire Training Group. The fostering agency she previously owned achieved ‘Outstanding’ due to this model and exceptional outcomes achieved for children.

Sarah is also an author and best seller on Amazon in Adoption books for ‘William Wobbly and the Very Bad Day' which is a story about a little boy with attachment difficulties (RAD), due to having suffered trauma in his early life.

She was awarded Woman of the Year 2014 (Women in Business Awards).

Sarah has 32 years child care experience in Local Authority and private sector and is a former foster carer.

Tim and Rachel Hughes

Tim and Rachel pastor Gas Street in Birmingham, a church they planted in 2015.

Rachel has a background in Television & Media and also served on the staff team at HTB for several years. She is passionate about seeing God’s Kingdom come in Birmingham, and communicating the freedom and transformation that comes through a relationship with Jesus.

Tim is a worship leader and song writer known for songs such as “Here I Am to Worship”, “Happy Day”, “The Way”, and “Hope and Glory”. He also pioneered Worship Central, a movement of worship leaders and musicians with a desire to see people encounter God, be equipped as worship leaders so that the local church can be empowered.

They have four children, Phoebe, Simeon, Lois and Judah.

Summit FAQs

Can I bring my baby or toddler?

We are setting up a baby friendly area at the back of the main auditorium for any babies and children under the age of three so that you will still feel part of the programme. There will also be a separate creche room available where we will be streaming the audio from the main auditorium so that you don’t miss anything. Please note that babies and children are the responsibly of their parents and carers.

Do you provide lunch?

When you book your tickets you have the option to book a ticket which includes a hog roast lunch for £6 for adults and £4.50 for children and youth (vegetarian option available). If you have any dietary requirements, please make sure you include them when you book.

We will only provide lunch if it has been booked in advance. Alternatively you are welcome to bring your own lunch with you.

I’m interested in adoption or fostering, should I come along?

Yes, definitely! The programme will be relevant for those who are already fostering or adopting, those who are interested and those who are supporting others, including church leaders.

My child requires additional support, will he be catered for?

Yes! Both the children and young people's teams are prepared to support all the children for their individual needs. Please make sure that when you register them that you include as much detail as possible so that we can prepare in advance as necessary.


For more information about any of the above, please contact Tammy Voros.
